I have a number of images I compressed as LuraWave before I knew about advantages of open formats in general and Jpeg2000 or c44 in particular.

What is the simplest way to view *.lwf images in Linux?

According to this page, XnView can do it. Have you tried GIMP? I've yet to find a format GIMP can't deal with (you probably just did though).

Yes, gimp-2.7 can't open it. file returns \0 "WV\002" instead of the file type. – Vi. Aug 20 '12 at 18:46
@Vi. Did you try Xnview? It looks promising. – terdon Aug 20 '12 at 20:07
Not yet downloaded. When I try I'll comment here. – Vi. Aug 21 '12 at 4:19
/mnt/...../Sonata.lwf 0x0x0 : not a picture - xnconvert installed from Debian package fails to read it. Maybe it needs some plugins? – Vi. Aug 23 '12 at 19:53
Yes, this page mentions for lwf Plugin required, Windows only. – Vi. Aug 23 '12 at 19:59
