fbsetbg not working

I use Slackware 9.1 and Fluxbox 0.9.9. After restarting my X server the wallpaper was gone . Running:
 fbsetbg image.jpg
gives me this output:
fbsetbg: Something went wrong while setting the wallpaper.
Run 'display -geometry 1024x768+0+0 -window root A_Dead_Soul.jpg' from an xterm to find out what.
and if I run the above I get:
display: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I believe is part of ImageMagick(which I tried to install last week) so I can not really see why fbsetbg needs it .
Can someone show me a way to get pass this problem? Do I have to install libWand? I haven't tried that already because I was unable to get it.

I would try uninstalling ImageMagick and then re-installing it. See if that does any good.

stupid question

How can I uninstall ImageMagick? Until now I used "whereis program" and then simply deleting everything. But now the only result I get is the location of the man page.
