Hi All,

Just installed 5.0. Nice upgrade.  Question:

I have two users on my system, myself (created at install) and a second account created later.  The second account works as it should but I've found a minor issue.  When I go to the "About Me" section and try to change my login image/photo, it asks me for a password to proceed.  I use the 2nd account's password but the system says its incorrect.  I've tried several times and even logged out and back in with the same password used for "About Me."  I then tried the password for the original account created at install.  No go.  I'm not sure what else to do.  Caps Lock is off and I've typed the 2 passwords into text editor so I can see that they're correct and then copy and pasted them in.  Still no go.  Any ideas?  BTW- Same thing happened on the first original account when changing "About Me" icon.  I entered my password and it worked without a problem.

Thanks,

Chris

If you're trying to change user 2's photo, you can't, not as a normal user. Think about it, you're logged in as him/her with no sudo rights. Logged in as you, you'll need to temporarily assign them sudo (Lite User Manager) change the photo with them logged in, logout, login as you again and then unassign sudo from user2.

Thanks for the reply.  I promoted user 2 via sudo, made the changes and demoted- all worked fine.

Take Care
