after installing Endeavour OS I have a question concerning the profile picture in XFCE. As far as I know by clicking on the default icon there is a choice between a number of profile pictures. This is not working here. Am I missing something here.
Thanks in advance,
I think you have to go into settings, lightdm-gtk-greeter settings and select a profile picture by browsing to a folder or location of the file you want to use. It’s under user image, default user image.
Thanks for your quick answer. I guess I found another solution by installing mugshot from the AUR or simply creating the .face in the home directory. Is this correct?
Thanks again in advance,
I’m not sure if t is correct or not? I guess if it works.
Yes it works. Ahhh…is it ok to mark my own post as solution ?!?
Yes, that is very helpful.
Don’t mean to revive this thread, but how can one actually change the profile picture in xfce eos. I do not see the lightdm-greeter in system settings and think it has been replaced by something else in eos atlantis iso release.
When I click the whisker on the user image, it does not allow to load an image but just says
failed to edit profile, failed to execute child process mugshot. But I am not keen on installing a AUR mugshot package for my user profile settings.
Yes, lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings is replaced by lightdm-slick-greeter, the configuration file is in /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf, where you can change lockscreen background, there is no option for change profile picture, but i guess you can added the same line like the previous lightdm-greeter-settings.conf.
If you want to revert back back to the lightdm-greeter, you will have to change the lightdm.conf in the [Seat:*] and change “greeter-session=lightdm-slick-greeter” to lightdm-greeter-settings".
If you just remove the slick-greeter package and install lightdm-greeter instead, BLACKSCREEN at next startup and must chroot the system to rollback to normal.
All possible config options here : (don’t know if all work)
Thanks that helps a lot! Will try there is also lightdm-settings that seems to work with slick-greeter.
