ID image change (SOLVED)
« on: April 10, 2018, 05:56:29 pm »
It seems impossible to change the cartoon image (default)  to a preffered pic for my user ID via the GUI in P8. Any advice guys?

This is an easy one.  Run, (Copy & Paste) this command in a terminal window:
Code: [Select]
mv -v ~/.face ~/.face.old
Make sure the image you want to use is in PNG format.  Rename it:
Code: [Select]
.face
Copy it to your /home folder.  That's it.  I hope this helps - have fun  ;).
