RAW image files are supported, but not for viewing.
The only way to view them I have found is to open them in GIMP, which uses a plugin to import and convert them to jpeg.

Gwenview in KDE 4.6.1 still do not show raw. Use XnView MP beta that it can display RAW or Showfoto.

Gthumb can do it, but I think you must have ufraw installed.

Gthumb does not need to build catalogs first and create albums etc before you can view your pictures. Not 100% sure but I think XnView is such a program where you have to "add folders" and "add album" before you can see the files on disk, which is a nuisance IMHO.

If this is still not working you can always use geeqie. It is gtk, but very fast for viewing raw files and fairly lightweight. Other than this I believe dolphin will do it.
