Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2021-04-23 10:43:51 CEST
Our documentation currently states this for the icon field for profiles:

> A 22x22 image shown next to the name in the profile list. Paths can be absolute or relative /opt/thinlinc/share/tl-select-profile. 

This is true, but it's not the complete truth. We also support two other icon types:

 * GTK+ stock icons (e.g. "gtk-cancel")

 * Named icons (most of the stuff under /usr/share/icons)

The latter is necessary to properly support xsession .desktop files so it is something we really want.

We should document all alternatives available to our users.

Not that GTK+ stock icons are deprecated since GTK+ 3.10. So support for that will likely be removed on bug 7508.

Looks good!
