All cached files contain information about the source of this file and
some more information at the start of the file. The actual data follows
after this information. Therefore your image viewers can't display the
jpgs. If you remove the information at the begin of the file then you
will get viewable jpgs.
I could remove the information from a cached jpg by running the
cat .kde/share/apps/kio_http/cache/a/<name of cached jpg> | sed -n
'/^image\/jpeg$/,$p' | sed -n '3,$p' >test.jpg
For other cached files the "image\/jpeg" has to be replaced with the
appropriate mime type of this file. Looking at the file with khexedit
