Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1293078
SDDM doesn't use .face.icon
Last modified: 2015-12-19 21:50:47 EST
Description of problem:
Login screen doesn't show user image (~/.face.icon). Lock screen does show it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version : 0.13.0
Release : 4.fc23
Steps to Reproduce:
A placeholder image is shown for each user.
The image .face.icon should be shown.
It's (most likely) just a matter of permissions, fedora default permissions do not allow any (non-root) users to read your $HOME (including desktop managers like sddm).
If you want to allow this, do:
chmod a+X $HOME
Once plasma-user-manager is reviewed, we theoretically could add code to adjust permissions for you, once a face is set in the UI
Using chmod as specified fixes the issue.
That was my next bug - no user manager in settings - but you suggest the package will be added after review?
Yes, once it's reviewed
