I don't know - your code works fine here.

I'm just shooting from the hip here, but on some formats there's a pixel 
(0,0 ?) that's used to specify the color that represents transparency. Also, 
it's possible your jpg isn't a format Qt likes. You could try either a 
different jpg or converting it to xpm or png (gimp, for example, or probably 
xv will do that).

I assume by "color map wrong" you mean that the colors in the image you 
display are different than colors are supposed to be?
