Did a search and nothing comes up. Is anyone else having issues viewing .tif/.tiff files? Gimp will open them, but Gwenview, or Kolourpaint either one will open/view them. Never had this problem before.

Let me add a little info. I'm running the KDE desktop, and I've pretty much always run the KDE desktop, but I've NEVER had this problem before. My latest daily distro is Mint 17.3, and it works flawless opening tif files with Gwenview and Kolourpaint Am I missing a package that could possibly be causing this? Stumped! A google search does't really turn up anyone having this issue. I also keep getting an error message for 'kdeinit5', (doesn't show up in pacman, or yay) Not sure if this has anything to do with the problem or not. Also, in the 'file browser' the saved tif file are not showing right. They look sort of like an colored 'xray'? in the thumbnail in the file browser.
