Fluxbox Probelm: fbsetbg error

Alright when I try to make a *.jpg file my desktop background through fluxbox it gives me this:

fbsetbg: Something went wrong while setting the wallpaper.
Run 'wmsetbg -s -S /home/*****/fluxthemes/Necromancer/backgrounds/<filename>.jpg

wmsetbg warning: could not open domain file /home/*****/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker
wmsetbg warning: /home/*****/fluxthemes/Necromancer/backgrounds/<filename>.jpg:could not load image file used in texture:the image format in the file is not supported and can't be loaded

I am running Slackware 10, yes... i am a noob... so if anyone could gimme a link or something to download the format... if that is the prob that'd be great. I've tried everything i know of.

I'm not sure what the error is. Missing jpeg support? If you don't have libjpeg listed in /var/log/packages install it.
