Hi julioskij,

What did it for me was to replace the existing .face file with a random .png file, thus delete .face and rename some .png to .face (ofcourse all in the same directory where you find .face: /home/*username*/.face )
Make sure you show all hidden files in that directory...

Reinstalling the ´About Me'-app did not work for me either...

Hope this helps!
