    Default Add Lock Screen Button to Kickoff?

    How would I add the Lock Screen button alongside the Shutdown, Reboot, and Logoff buttons on the Kickoff panel?



    Thanks!

    I also wanted to add it to kickoff. But i was able to add it to the panel by adding it from the widgets, now i find it easy to lock.

    you can make a new desktop file that runs Lock screen and add it to your favorites (it would be just above the Kickoff)

    Yes, locking it with Ctrl-Alt-L is really very easy now. You can also create a new desktop file that can run the lock screen. Later on, you can add it to your favorites.

    Thanks!
    First unluck the widgets
    In your image you see the Power/Session
    click it and you will see lock, mouse right click lock
    and choose add to favorites. Enjoy using your lock shortcut.

    Unhappy Re: Add Lock Screen Button to Kickoff?

    I added the Lock/Leave widget to the taskbar/panel, and clicked the one to Leave, expected to be prompted to choose shutdown/reboot or at least confirm I wanted to leave. It dimmed the screen but nothing else popped-up. I'm able to Lock the session and that screen looks correct, but when I reenter the session, it's still dimmed. Clicking Shutdown, Restart, and Logoff have no effect.
