FS#192 - By default permissions on /home/ folder do not allow profile picture to be shown

This happens on a fresh install of Manjaro KDE, basically, due to the fact by default user profile folders are not readable by others, causes SDDM not to show the profile pictures.

They seem to ignore /var/lib/AccountsService files, the permissions there are fine. In fact, deleting .face files inside user folders makes SDDM not to show the picture even if the permissions are correct. So SDDM uses those files instead

I used KDE to change the profile pictures. Even to create another user, which attacches the “wrong” permission.

Should this be reported upstream? I don’t know if that is an SDDM malfunction.
