Getting user 'face' icons to display in lxdm [SOLVED]

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...

Re: Getting user 'face' icons to display in lxdm [SOLVED]

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".
