Two Weeks Ago, i set up a Gentoo VM and Configured it to my style. I Spend a bit of time yesterday configuring my i3 config, to set a wallpaper. So I emerged xloadimage, imlib and imlib2. Once That Was Done i downloaded Waterfox with wget to get a browser. I Picked A Wallpaper and Put in my /root/wallpaper folder. Then I Set In My Config for i3: exec_always xloadimage -onroot -fullscreen /root/wallpaper/wallpaper.png, and restarted i3 and i got a white screen, so i Thought xloadimage was broken, then i tried the same thing with feh (feh --bg-scale /root/wallpaper/wallpaper.png) , but this time in xterm and i got an error:

feh WARNING: /root/Wallpaper/wallpaper.png - No Imlib2 loader for that file format
feh ERROR: Unable to load image /root/Wallpaper/wallpaper.png

I am installing Nitrogen While I'm Writing This but my VM is slow, so i will have to wait and see what happens

(Sorry for My Bad English, i am from Germany)

Hider ... is USE="png" enabled on media-libs/imlib?

Code:
% equery -NC uses =media-libs/imlib2-1.5.1 | grep png
 + + png  : Add support for libpng (PNG images)

... and similarly for media-gfx/xloadimage:

Code:
% equery -NC uses =media-gfx/xloadimage-4.1-r11 | grep png
 - - png  : Add support for libpng (PNG images)

Also, not a good idea to run x11 as root, create a user to run your WM under.

best ... khay
