face not appearing in login, Cinnamon 1.6

Postby iamjerico » Sat Nov 17, 2012 11:33 am

Hi all,

Running Mint 14/Cinnamon 1.6, and selected "Arc-Brave-Userlist" in mdmsetup for my login window (along with "Themed with face browser") - but my picture (~/.face) doesn't appear in the initial login window. Weidly though, the picture DOES appear on the unlock screen, as well as in my account details under Administration->User Accounts.

I tried coping my ~/.face file to /usr/share/faces as well as /usr/share/pixmaps, and tried renaming it from ".face" to my username, with and without an initial capital letter, and with/without the .PNG extension, but nothing seems to work. In Mint 13, placing the file into /usr/share/faces (as my username, with a capital first letter) worked...

Thanks in advance for any advice!

Justin

Mint 14 is not released, discussion of RC issues is requested at http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2205
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

I had the same problem. You can get it to appear there by setting the picture in the "User Accounts" program. Seems like a bug that changing or setting it in one place doesn't make it get picked up everywhere.
