Place an image (.jpg or .png of around 90x90 but doesn't have to be exact) in your home folder .. then rename it to

.face

no extension, and YES it must start with a "." .. so be aware, after renaming it, it will be hidden unless you have "Show Hidden" enabled in your file manager (Ctrl+H toggles "Show Hidden")



At least I'm "pretty" sure it can be a JPG .. I know PNG's work as that's what I use.
