I'm trying to change my user avatar but I can't find the Password & User Account.

In my System Settings → Common Appearance and Behavior → Account Details there are only 2 elements, Paths and Social Desktop.

What package do I need to install? I've installed KDE-Base only on my Arch Linux.

My Kubuntu shows I have kuser and manage-users installed (and, of course, much more - but those look to me like they could be a match). Not sure how those packages are called in arch though... – Johannes H. Dec 7 '13 at 15:37
I've installed kdeadmin-kuser but the section is still missing :( Can't find manage-user...I'll google for it – Gigitsu Dec 7 '13 at 15:51
Found it! kdepasswd – Gigitsu Dec 7 '13 at 15:58
You might want to answer your own question, for future reference. – Johannes H. Dec 7 '13 at 18:01

The missing package was kdepasswd

kdepasswd in KDE 5 only changes the password and does not let you change the avatar. – Guss Jan 29 at 10:14
