The login icons are normally a boring stylized grey head/torso above the login/password fields. So I decided to play around a bit to have some more attractive icons. (this is the kind of thing I do when I'm bored, sorry, but it brings me new enlightenment or questions every time).

The default icon is found in /usr/share/sddm/faces/.face.icon and is a 256 x 256 px PNG.

Replacing this file with a different PNG did indeed provide a new login icon, albeit for all users.

Placing different .face.icon PNG files in the "normal" user's home directories gave every user his/her own login icon. They can even select/define one themselves.

Oddity: in my own account, which is root and admin, I'm not able to do this. I'm only able to use the icon in the /usr/share/sddm/faces directory.

Is there any explanation for this? I've played around with chown/chmod until exhaustion, but to no avail.
