Synaptic the Ubuntu package manager does not offer me a
conveniently prepackaged jpegtran (otherwise I'd just
use it) but instead offers exiftran, an application
which I had never heard of until now.
exiftran is describe as being the same as jpegtran only
it is cleverer about exif information.

it would be great if comix could optionally use
exiftran where available.

    On most systems jpegtran is preinstalled, since it usually
    is a part of the standard jpeg library. On Ubuntu however,
    it is part of the libjpeg-progs package, which must be
    installed to get jpegtran.

    I will consider adding support for exiftran as well though.

    As of Comix 4, the jpegtran actions are no longer supported.
