Description David Zeuthen 2007-02-26 12:48:42 EST
For f-u-s we're considering giving random login pictures to users upon account creation. This means ~/.face will be set. As such, it would be useful if e-d-s read from ~/.face by default instead of assuming no picture is set. It's an open question if e-d-s should update ~/.face if the user selects a new picture. Matthias says it may be desirable to have separate faces for gdm and eds... But at least e-d-s should read ~/.face.
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-02 20:42:16 EDT
David (or Matthias), Can you enlighten me a little more about what ~/.face is used for? Is this a (de facto) standard file that other applications know about? Is it localized? Seems like it should be pretty simple to implement once I understand the requirements.

Yes, ~/.face is used by both gdm and fusa to display the users "face" in resp. the login menu and the user switcher applet. It's not localized and in the future we may pull the "face" from another source... If it's a lot of work, I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Matthias?
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-03 16:21:31 EDT
Given that we don't install a .face by default, the user has to bring up the about me capplet anyway to select a face, and the capplet writes to both locations, so I think this is not a big win. All it would do is make evolution pick up the preinstalled face on the live cd, right ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-03 16:22:44 EDT
To complete that comment, I don't think random faces is worthwhile until we can make the fast-user-switch-applet show them, too.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-03 16:27:31 EDT
So this definitely shouldn't be an FC7Blocker. Moving to FC7Target for now. I'll at least give it a quick looksee.
Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-02 19:52:47 EDT
I've informed upstream about this.
Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2007-10-04 12:27:15 EDT
Moving to F9Target
Comment 8 Milan Crha 2008-02-11 13:19:50 EST
Moving to rawhide per last comment.
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 18:29:06 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '9'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 10 Matthew Barnes 2009-06-28 21:33:10 EDT
Cleaning house. Is this feature still desirable and worth pushing upstream or should I let it expire?
Comment 11 Matthias Clasen 2009-06-28 21:54:24 EDT
I'd talk to Ray, I think we want to get some other storage for this kind of per-user data
Comment 12 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 12:44:33 EDT
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
