Enabling the display of username and icons on kdm login - Mandriva 2005 & 2006

The default login screen for 2005LE and 2006 does not show user icons, and there appears to be no way to change this from the control center.

This is because there is a theme attached to the KDM login manager by default, which hides the icon display.

If you wish to re-enable it, you will need to edit file /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc as root, and change the value for UseTheme from true to false.

On logging out of your KDE session, you should see a scrollable list of users with their icons.

You can add your own pictures to the list of available icons by placing them into directory /usr/share/mdk/faces. You will need root access to modify this directory, though.

It actually takes me several hours on finding how to do it. Its hard to do accurate search if the keyword is not that accurate, so to be easily remember, added it here.
