Here is the closest I have come to finding a solution to this: http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showpost.p … stcount=35
On my box, there does not appear to be a /var/lib/AccountServices dir though...

EDIT: Just place a 96x96 pic in ~ and name it ~/.face
None of the below (my original post) seems necessary.
OLD ANSWER THAT WORKS BUT IS MORE COMPLICATED THAN THE ABOVE
Finally figured it out. Seems as though extra/accountsservice has some role in allowing this but it seems as though the package itself is not needed and can be removed after you create your profile.
# pacman -S accountsservices touch /var/lib/AccountsService/users/YOURUSERNAME
Here is mine you can use as a template:
% cat /var/lib/AccountsService/users/facade [user] Language=en_US.utf8 Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/faces/coffee.jpg
Replace the last line with a full path to any 96x96 image (jpg and png are supported for sure).
If you REALLY want the set of default icons that gnome-control-center uses, go ahead and either install that package and copy them or build it via ABS and copy them out of the src dir without installing (recommended since gnome-control-center pulls down all sorts of nasty deps).
As I stated initially, it seems that you can remove accountsservice when finished and the pics stay.

Hello, I have placed an icon 96x96 px png format in my home (~/.face) but it doesn't work, I always have the standard icon! I must precise that I use LXDM with xfce environment.
Hello : don't forget to give read access right to your personal directory for "other".
