Are you converting the .xbm format into ikon format? compfaces only
works with ikon format.
Here's what works for me:
1) xbm2ikon < face.xbm > face.ikon using the script below
2) compface < face.ikon > face
If you'd like to submit the images for the facedir database, you can ftp
upload them to cs.indiana.edu:/pub/faces/incoming -- XBM format please.
