I installed feh and it was giving me warning "no imlib2 loader for that file format" well I downloaded media-libs/imlib2 and even imlib because it didnt work at all, I am trying to set a wallpaper but it wont even let me look at an image and i have no idea what to do. When I give it a picture it screams about this imlib2 issue and how theres no loadable images specified even though I just gave it an .jpg file.

So how do I compile imlib2 with "png jpeg gif" USE flags?

Probably you should activate correct format to imlib2 (enable png.jpeg and gif use flag)

As fedeliallalinea said re-emerge with those flags set, gif, jpeg, png

Edit to add: either add "gif, jpeg, png" to the USE= line in make.conf or add them to package.use for imlib2

I suggest emerging app-portage/ufed. Great tool.

Simple you shoud activate use flag on imlib2 package with package.use.
Code:
# echo "media-libs/imlib2 gif jpeg png" >> /etc/portage/package.use

Here is my /etc/portage/package.use/zz-autounmask, I added the gif jpeg png but it still does complain about the imlib2.

You have recompiled imlib2 package with new flags (emerge -1 imlib2)?

After changing USE flags you need to rebuild your @world with emerge --newuse, this is to make sure your Gentoo is consistent.
