Mugshot is a lightweight user configuration utility. Mugshot allows you to easily set profile image and user details for your user profile and any supported applications.

Currently, LibreOffice and Pidgin are the only supported external applications. Other applications that retrieve user information from /etc/passwd will also be updated (including Abiword and Gnumeric). This ultimately provides a wide coverage of desktop and terminal Linux applications.
