Re: How to change user icon at top of Application Launcher's menu?

Hi Dale,
   Thank you for the response. That dialog area appears to be the same
one I get to directly by clicking on the offending icon that resides
at the top of the Application Launcher menu. Choosing the icon at the
right allows me to choose a new one from a gallery, but only
(apparently) for a new user. Changing it does not effect my account.

   Possibly this is a lack of documentation issue but there are
already user accounts on this machine and none of those existing users
show up on the left. All it says is 'New User'. Possibly I can create
a 'mark' user and then possibly KDE will change the icon associated
with my account but I'm uncertain and don't want to just play around
and create problems.

   Again, thanks for the response.
