Bug Description

The session indicator has no icon in the Panel in the Unity 8 Desktop Preview session.

Also, it appears in the indicator nav bar as 'indicator-session' instead of having some user-friendly title.

The "no icon" issue is resolved in utopic (though it has a colored icon, that's bug #1332548), the title one is an indicator-session issue ... do we have recommendation from design on what to use as a title?

Changed in unity8-desktop-session (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Low
summary: - session indicator has no icon
+ "indicator-session" name is suboptimal

That should be an easy one, can we get a label recommendation? What about "User"?

What is "the indicator nav bar"? Where exactly do you see a title instead of the icon?

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

if you pull down an indicator you see a bar with bigger icons and name (you can try on the phone, though that doesn't include session) (see e.g http://i1-news.softpedia-static.com/images/news2/ubuntu-touch-transforms-into-a-pc-with-just-a-bluetooth-mouse-video-487718-4.jpg where the title is "notifications")

So, on a phone/tablet you don't have the session menu, and on a PC you don't swipe down to show the indicator bar. When does this problem occur?

i assume this is for pocket desktop which uses the phone UI but in desktop context by default

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) wrote :

@mpt, currently unity8 in desktop mode (pocket pc or desktop) has indicator swiping out showing the bar...

The desktop session now uses the same System indicator and icon as the desktop personality everywhere else. Marking as fix released.
