Using arch and I want to edit my mugshot but when I click on the mugshot icon on the whisker menu I get this error, using arch linux.

Run "mugshot" in a terminal window and post back the results.

Re: [solved] Failed to execute child process "mugshot"

We gave up on this application during development, but I do remember that you have to create (and populate, I think) that folder:

/home/paddy/.face

before it will even run.
