Icon size in Whisker Menu (accessibility)

I'm planning to migrate my parents PC to Linux and I would like to install Xubuntu as it's the most trouble-free distro I know of. My father has some problems with eyesight so I need to increase the size of the whole UI. I've been quite successful so far. I've made following changes:

I've set fonts DPI to 120, panel size to a height of 38 px, cursor size to 32 px, desktop icons to 64 px, changed Window Manager theme to Greybird-accessibility, increased the size of thunar icons and set a preference in Firefox called layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to value of 1.2
In xsettings I've set Gtk/IconSizes to:


Unfortunately, these changes do not affect some of the icons in Whisker Menu that I marked with a red circle on the screenshot below. It's just a small detail but it would make the desktop more complete. Is it possible to increase their size somehow?

Nice setup! I don't know of a way to change the size of those icons, though sad

There's nothing about it in the Whisker Menu bug tracker, maybe you should ask for the enhancement there, seems worth it.

Wait, I just found the developer's blog and there's a post you might find useful: Theming Whisker Menu (with a new version if you're using 2.0.0 or above). So, good luck!
