View Full Version : [ubuntu] Change Another User's Picture

July 4th, 2010, 02:20 AM

Is there a simple way for me (the main user) to change the photo of another user on my system, without logging into that user's account and using his/her "About Me"?

Thanks for advice!

Well, you could try to "sudo -s" to get root access, and then "su - <username>", and then "export DISPLAY=:0" to get graphics working, and then "gnome-about-me", which should bring up the users about me window. Of course, this is only a workaround; by su-minus-ing into his/her account, you actually do log in, but not graphical.
