Angry fluxbox background

hey all,

i am in need of some desperate help, i tried #linuxhelp with no luck and read all the docs. My question is how do i set FluxBox background. I'm trying to put a .jpg image as my background by bsetbg and it says:
[khuong@localhost khuong]$ bsetbg /home/khuong/tmp/linux.jpg
Esetroot: Unable to load image file "/home/khuong/tmp/linux.jpg".
the image is there and when i tried with another image it says the same. I tried Esetroot but it'll say unable to load.......(same as above)

i really want to use Esetroot that came with fluxbox and don't really want to use another program. Someone said to install imagemagick but it did nothing.

Thanks in advance,

Is Esetroot symlink to bsetbg or vice versa?

bsetbg works fine for me.
if image cannot be loaded by bsetbg how come Esetroot is giving the error

BTW what is Esetroot?

I believe Esetroot only works when you have Eterm installed so try installing that.
