Space between icons on desktop

Hi guys,

I love how fast xfce is and i'd use the whole suite if I could solve this one problem. I've searched high and low on google for an answer, so I thought I'd ask here in the off chance someone knows if this is possible.

When I try to position the icons on my xfdesktop (latest svn) I can see a big box around the icon. A kind of padding that doesn't allow me to put the icons any closer together. I have a lot of stuff on my desktop, so that wastes quite a bit of space for me.

My question is, does anyone know if there's a way to change this? Is it themable? I don't mind even getting into the source to change this as long as I know where to look.

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

Re: Space between icons on desktop

You can't change the padding used with xfdesktop, but changing the font size can
sometimes help.

If you want to patch the code have a look at 49 and 50 in ./src/xfdesktop-icon-view.c

I don't mind the padding, but it is a bit annoying that I can't have icons all the way to right or the button of screen...
