Hello, I installed sway with swaybg flag but I can't set a wallpaper. I tried to do manually running swaybg from terminal:
Code:

yorozuya3@localhost ~ $ swaybg -i ~/Pictures/background.jpg
2021-01-25 03:19:05 - [swaybg-1.0/background-image.c:30] Failed to load background image (Couldn’t recognize the image file format for file “/home/yorozuya3/Pictures/background.jpg”).
2021-01-25 03:19:05 - [swaybg-1.0/main.c:438] Failed to load image: /home/yorozuya3/Pictures/background.jpg
2021-01-25 03:19:05 - [swaybg-1.0/main.c:295] Could not find config for output eDP-1 (Unknown 0x303E 0x00000000)

Thank in advance!

And if I understand correctly, that translates to installing gui-wm/sway with the wallpapers USE flag set.
