      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Displaying User Icons on Login

Recommended Posts

The default login screen for 2005LE and 2006 does not show user icons, and there appears to be no way to change this from the control center.


This is because there is a theme attached to the KDM login manager by default, which hides the icon display.


If you wish to re-enable it, you will need to edit file /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc as root, and change the value for UseTheme from true to false.


On logging out of your KDE session, you should see a scrollable list of users with their icons.


You can add your own pictures to the list of available icons by placing them into directory /usr/share/mdk/faces. You will need root access to modify this directory, though.


Many thanks to AussieJohn for actually coming up with this information in the first place, on this thread: https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtopic=29116&hl=.
