Bump to say thanks to Arlos70 for his solution. I punched that into the default MDM login window theme and finally got the face browser. It's pretty fugly compared to LM9's equivalent but at least it's there now.

What actually worked for me was renaming an image file to .face and placing it inside my home and other users' homes. I found that information in a post in this thread and in the New features in Linux Mint 14 page here:
At first my daughter's account was not showing her picture in the login user list. After doing

Code: Select all

ls -la
inside her home I discovered I still owned the picture and therefore her account was not able to load it into the user list. I know, it was something silly, but I solved it with

Code: Select all

chown mydaughter:mydaughter .face

Doesn't seem to be fixed in 14.

Under Login Window Preferences > Local
I have Style set to "Themed with face browser"

Still no user list or face icons at login.
