Ubuntu - Add WebP Support


If running Ubuntu 22.10 or later, you don't need to do anything. However, if you are running 22.04 or earlier, then you can add webp support to most of your applications by running:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:helkaluin/webp-pixbuf-loader -y \
  && sudo apt update \
  && sudo apt install webp-pixbuf-loader -y
