Eye of GNOME can't show .nef images properly

Bug Description

Ubuntu 11.10 x64
eog 3.2.0-0ubuntu1

When I open .nef images the application can only display the image in a very
small, low resolution format, just as if it loaded the thumbnail into the image
viewer instead of the proper photograph.

I first reported this in the GNOME bugtracker:

There I got the reply:

Well, I'd say that depends on how good you are at compiling stuff yourself.
If you're not so good at it, you should open a Launchpad ticket for libopenraw
and request the inclusion of the loader and possibly an update to the latest
package version.

Alternatively, the sourcecode to libopenraw is there:

For building you'll need at least the development packages for boost and
gdk-pixbuf installed. Then it's a standard autotools build.

Doing "make install" should install the loader at the right position.

Remember though that I'm not an Ubuntu user, so things might be different over

But I have no idea how to do any of this since I'm just a user reporting a bug, not an ubuntu developer.

Thank you for your bug report, it seems like a request for libopenraw to package the gdk loader, the package comes from Debian so the request should be filed there rather

Can someone do this for me since I have no idea what I'm doing? I just wanted to do my part and report a bug :)
