First idea, "well something went wrong" (because i simple rsynced my settings from another pc). Later it turned out something else was missing. A simple "pacman -S giflib" and everything was running fine afterwards.
so giflib was missing.
What is "giflib"?
giflib is a library for rendering and generating GIF image files.
