REVISION SUMMARY The current Breeze icon used for the default Network(`network-workgroup`) is not ideal for several reasons: - It it not clear what it depicts (I was told it's a server rack, but there's not enough detail to make this apparent) - Even if the visuals were clear, its iconography (a server rack) is not familiar to people who are not sysadmins This patch replaces it with `folder-network`, which yields the following improvements: - This icon includes the "sideways dotted V" imagery that is used in other contexts (shared folder emblem, Share menu, which teaches the user its meaning - Many other platforms use circular globe or world iconography for their network icons. Even though this new icon is not a globe or world, it is circular, which helps to re-use some of a user's prior experience on other platforms - Semantically, `folder-network` is just a more appropriate icon to use for this than `network-workgroup`. The item leads to the whole network, not a specific workgroup. TEST PLAN New icon shows up in all Places panels for new user accounts, or if you delete `~/.local/share/user-places.xbel` in an existing user account Dolphin Places panel: [image goes here] REPOSITORY R241 KIO BRANCH better-network-icon (branched from master) REVISION DETAIL https://phabricator.kde.org/D15931 AFFECTED FILES autotests/kfileplacesmodeltest.cpp src/filewidgets/kfileplacesmodel.cpp To: ngraham, #vdg Cc: kde-frameworks-devel, michaelh, ngraham, bruns
