This could be due to KDE not finding your  libjpeg.so files.

If you have installed a precompiled KDE, it will have ideas
about where to look for libjpeg.so. If the libjpeg.so is somewhere
else on you system - what you describe whould happen.

Make a truss(1) of a KDE app  that uses JPG's and search it for

then make a link in one of the paths it has searched to where
the libjpeg.so  resides on your system.
