    User account picture location in 12.04

    While going through the setup process, I used my webcam to take a user picture for my account.
    Does anyone know where I could locate this file? As the title says, I'm currently running 12.04.
    Thank you!

    Hi Savella,

    It's in your Home folder. You'll need to go view/hidden files to see it though.

    It's called ".face" (without speech marks ofcourse).
    Windows free since '09 - never looked back!

    Not in 12.04.

    User face icons are in /var/lib/AccountsService/icons

    One 96x96 png file per user.

    But you can (as root) edit the file /var/lib/AccountsService/users/<yourusername>
    and change the Icon entry:

    Code:
    [User]
    XSession=ubuntu
    XKeyboardLayouts=
    Background=/usr/share/backgrounds/contest/precise.xml
    Icon=<any image file, defaults to /var/lib/AccountsService/icons/<yourusername>

    Does this mean it's not yet possible to add the profile pictures without the terminal? I couldn't find it in the settings.

    Ahh, found it. Just had to click on the image placeholder of the account.
