Xfce has a great panel plugin called xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin.
This menu has your user name on it and a small image beside it, clicking that image will try to invoke an app called "mugshot" which should let you switch to another image and perhaps do other things as well.
This "mugshot" package seems to be missing from Gentoo's repository and overlays as well.
I was wondering whether the devs simply missed it or perhaps there's a replacement package instead of it? (couldn't find any documentation regards it)

IMO this impairs Xfce's functionality a bit...

For reference, here's that package found on Arch -> https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mugshot/

Hello,

I need this application too, so I created an ebuild in my own private overlay:

You can see it here: https://github.com/y2kbadbug/gentoo-overlay/tree/master/x11-misc/mugshot

Let me know if you experience any problems :)

Try running it from command line and see what errors it spits out.

This is common
Code:

(mugshot:30683): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme parsing error: mate-applications.css:26:23: 'none' is not a valid color name
/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/mugshot/CameraMugshotDialog.py:27: PyGIWarning: Gst was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gst', '1.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded.
  from gi.repository import Gtk, GObject, Gst, GdkPixbuf


Anything else, paste me and Ill see if I can figure it out for you. It works fine for me.

Hey Daniel2, I'm testing this out now on amd64 (as soon as my libreoffice rebuild finishes). I've opened up Gentoo bug 571382 to get it into Portage.

Just my 2 cents, to change the user avatar on whisker menu, you can copy the file you want as avatar to ~/.face.

I was getting many issues with the daniels's ebuild.

Then, I updated that ebuild to 0.3.1 version of mugshot and everything is running smooth.

Here it is what I did:

# mkdir -v /var/lib/layman/jkosta

add the line "/var/lib/layman/jkosta" to file /var/lib/layman/make.conf
(without the quotation marks)

# mkdir -v /var/lib/layman/jkosta/metadata/

add the line "masters = gentoo" to file /var/lib/layman/jkosta/metadata/layout.conf
(without the quotation marks)

# mkdir -v /var/lib/layman/jkosta/profiles
# echo "jkosta" > /var/lib/layman/jkosta/profiles/repo_name
# cd /usr/portage/distfiles/
# wget https://launchpad.net/mugshot/0.3/0.3.1/+download/mugshot-0.3.1.tar.gz
# mkdir -pv /var/lib/layman/jkosta/x11-misc/mugshot
# cd /var/lib/layman/jkosta/x11-misc/mugshot
# cp /var/lib/layman/y2kbadbug/x11-misc/mugshot/mugshot-0.3.0.ebuild .
# mv mugshot-0.3.0.ebuild mugshot-0.3.1.ebuild
# ebuild mugshot-0.3.1.ebuild manifest
# emerge -av mugshot

Note: replace "jkosta" by the name of your repo.

Now it is time to launch mugshot and enjoy it. ;)
