I have KDE 3.1_RC5 installed. I'm using KDM, and I try to change the user images. When I try to change it (for example the default user image), it complains that it can't save it in the directory /usr/share/apps/kdm/pics/users/default.png. So then it doesn't change. I tried creating the directory /usr/share/apps/kdm/pics/users, but then when I try to change the image, it doens't complain, but the image doesn't show up in KDM.

The second thing is that under the list of names you can click, it says "root" with "root" below it next to the picture for root, and for my normal login it only says "matthew" next to the picture for me. Any idea why?

I have the same problem. The problem is that the icons should be saved under /usr/kde/3.1/share/apps/kdm/pics/users

You can copy them manually into this directory, use the format
<username>.png
