Okay so I'm using a 64 bit Linux and I was having a lot of trouble getting Calibre ebook tool to convert books into Kindle loving mobi format. I was getting a python error:

ImportError: libjpeg.so.62: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Turns out all you need to do is

sudo apt-get install libjpeg62

You can test this by starting python and doing:

import _imaging
