(Solved) fbsetbg: line 153: xmessage: command not found

Hello,

I'm trying to set background image for Fluxbox.

After typing fbsetbg command in xterm I get following error:

$ fbsetbg -f ~/.fluxbox/backgrounds/wallpaper.jpg
/usr/bin/fbsetbg: line 153: xmessage: command not found

The most common way to solve this (according to Internet) is to install xorg-apps, but there is no xmessage app under it.

# pacman -S xorg-apps
:: There are 37 members in group xorg-apps:
:: Repository extra
   1) xorg-bdftopcf  2) xorg-iceauth  3) xorg-luit  4) xorg-mkfontdir
   5) xorg-mkfontscale  6) xorg-sessreg  7) xorg-setxkbmap  8) xorg-smproxy
   9) xorg-x11perf  10) xorg-xauth  11) xorg-xbacklight  12) xorg-xcmsdb
   13) xorg-xcursorgen  14) xorg-xdpyinfo  15) xorg-xdriinfo  16) xorg-xev
   17) xorg-xgamma  18) xorg-xhost  19) xorg-xinput  20) xorg-xkbcomp
   21) xorg-xkbevd  22) xorg-xkbutils  23) xorg-xkill  24) xorg-xlsatoms
   25) xorg-xlsclients  26) xorg-xmodmap  27) xorg-xpr  28) xorg-xprop
   29) xorg-xrandr  30) xorg-xrdb  31) xorg-xrefresh  32) xorg-xset
   33) xorg-xsetroot  34) xorg-xvinfo  35) xorg-xwd  36) xorg-xwininfo
   37) xorg-xwud

Enter a selection (default=all):

I installed them any way, but it didn't help. Nether the reboot.

Is there a way to fix this?

$ pkgfile xmessage
extra/xorg-xmessage

/e:
See also the optional dependency of fluxbox:

$ pacman -Si fluxbox
Repository     : extra
Name           : fluxbox
Version        : 1.3.2-1
[...]
Optional Deps  : xorg-xmessage: for using the fbsetbg and fluxbox-generate_menu utilities
