    Not as big of a need, but those of you trying Xfce 4.10 in Fedora, is there a way to have a picture associated with your user account? Or a way to change the login icon so there is not a blank figure?

    Ya I know, not a big deal. And I apologize if there is a simple well known way to adjust this, I have had no luck in discovering a simple way to configure. Duckduckgo just shows information on modifying gdm. Not looking for major modifications, just want to get rid of the blank-figure that bugs me when I log in

    That's a GDM thing. Just saying that for F18 Xfce spin will probably have something else (I use LXDM and it works just as well as GDM, without the dependency dragging).
    Older GDMs used a ~/.face image.

    Yeah, I looked for .face image or similar to replace, could not find. I figured it was the default of gdm to display the user with blank icon. Not sure why you would display a blank icon without the option to change it? I would suggest a simple listing of user names

    Well, you need to add a .face file.

    Good luck with that. I've been trying off and on in F16/Xfce with gdm to get the login greeter to show an image other than the default faceless face icon ever since it's been installed.

    ~/.face.... doesn't work
    /usr/share/pixmaps/faces/paul[.jpg].... doesn't work
    /var/lib/AccountsService/icons/paul.jpg... doesn't work

    Perhaps some proper edit to /var/lib/AccountsService/users/paul will do.. but I haven't found a guide yet for valid entries.
    Various edits to /etc/gdm/custom.conf as suggested from scouring the web... doesn't work.

    Maybe it's easy, but I haven't found it yet.

    OK.. got it. Just did some more searching and found the magic bullet to change image in gdm login screen in Xfce/F16.

    Edit /var/lib/AccountsService/users/yourusername and add the line:

    Icon=/path/to/image.

    After doing this edit I tried just logging out and back in (without a reboot) and nothing changed. After a reboot, my new face image appeared in the gdm login screen.

    Worked for me too

    One point worth noting; I put the icon in my home folder initially, which didn't work. I copied it into /usr and pointed the link there instead, and presto!
    I generally use two tools - trial and error. They fix most things eventually!

    In my post above I referred to "/usr/share/icons/face/", but meant to say "/usr/share/pixmaps/faces/", now corrected. I pointed to the image I put in /usr/share/pixmaps/faces/".

    Thanks much for this information Pablo Two. I now have a login picture related to my user account, Thanks again
