Recently upgraded 16.04 to 18.04.

In the Settings app, I navigate to Details, Users. I click the thumbnail for my user account's image.

I am able to select one of the predetermined images that appears, but if instead I click "Select a file", then in the ensuing dialog ("Browse for more pictures"), I can highlight a local image file, but the "Open" button in the header bar remains greyed out, so I cannot actually select an image.

Has anyone seen this behavior? Know how to fix it?

  • What picture format do you select, jpg, pgn, ...? – muclux Jun 11 '18 at 18:00

    Format doesn't seem to matter; jpg, png, gif all fail. – matthewn Jun 11 '18 at 18:06
  • And you can open the selected picture otherwise? – muclux Jun 11 '18 at 18:10

    Yes, no problem opening any of these image files in any other context. – matthewn Jun 11 '18 at 18:26
  • Strange. Do you see the preview picture when you select your picture? – muclux Jun 11 '18 at 18:30
