Description Aleix Pol 2014-06-16 16:33:10 UTC
We'll be able to create new sessions from the lock screen, and we don't have an icon for that yet. I'll be using the logout button for that, for the moment.

Usability wise, sometimes, if it's not obvious immediately what icon you would use, means that it may be better to just use text instead (I think one of the problems in kde4 artwork is in fact that there are *too many* icons, only a subset of actions and concepts should have one), i wonder if would be possible to layout there a text-only button in an elegant way.
Comment 3 Aleix Pol 2014-06-17 10:24:43 UTC
Well, look at the lock screen design. it's not what we decided. if we don't want the icon then we need a new design.
Comment 4 Marco Martin 2014-06-17 11:12:38 UTC
ah, i see it as an entry as it was an user..
kinda makes sense.
in this case i suggest a generic user avatar (maybe with either a question mark or a "new" star near the face)
also, the switch user action should be in the action switcher in the bottom right corner, and the new session user icon in the user switch UI instead.

generic user icon

Created a generic user icon based on the user-group-new icon in the Breeze icon theme. I agree with Marco that this should sufficiently represent New Session.

 Hope this helps!

Works for me, can you put it in the theme so we can use it?
