Re: User Pic in gdm?

Tim is correct. He is referring to your root home directory. Default permissions are 0700. You'll need to chmod to at least 755 for gdm to display your face.

chmod 755 /home/username

If you're a single user system, you've got nothing to worry about. Yes, a different method should be setup for this. Possibly gdm accepting choices for faces through a dbus interface with gdm having a face storage.
