[SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

Almost have my xfce panel set up, but the icons are too big and too close together.  The panel is 35 pixels high and using 32x32 icon set.

How can I scale them down and space them out a bit? Thanks.

Re: [SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

Can you provide some more details? The answer will vary.

- Which distro?
- Which version of xfce4-panel?
- Which icons? (specifically which plugins)
- Which GTK Appearance theme are you using?

And maybe a screenshot to show the issue.

Linux Lite 4.2
xfce4-panel 4.12.2
Launcher Icons
Theme is Windows-10-master-theme

Want to get them a little smaller and some more space between them.

Re: [SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

Create or edit the file, ~/.gtkrc-2.0, with the following content:

style "launcher-padding"
{
   xthickness = 5
   ythickness = 5
}
widget "*launcher*" style "launcher-padding"

...and restart the panel:

xfce4-panel -r

Adjust the "5" as required.

Re: [SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

One more thing if you could.  When I move the mouse over the launchers in the panel, they turn to having a black background which is quite jarring.  How can I disable this effect?

Re: [SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

Have a read through this thread. The answer lies in putting the "panel-button-hover.png" file in your home directory and the contents of post #18 in your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file.

Thanks, I read the thread but the link to http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/6641/p … nhover.png seems to be broken.

Do you have an alternate source for it?

Re: [SOLVED] How to scale panel icons

Well based on the thread I made a new 48x24 image in Irfanview and saved it as png with all transparency options enabled as panel-button-hover.png in my home directory and added the example from post #18 into my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file and changed to a temporary theme then back to my main theme and everything works.  Thanks again!

Sorry, I didn't notice the broken link, but yes, you can create a simple transparent image and use it. Glad you got it to work.
