How can I increase the size of the volume icon in the Indicator Plugin

The volume Icon seems to stay the same size no matter what the panel size is set to.

I have xfce 4.10.0

The volume icon is in the Indicator plugin.
All of the other icons change size in the panel when I change the Panel size except the volume icon.
If I add the mixer item as a new item then it will adjust with the panel size, but it seems that only the volume icon in the Indicator applet will not.
It does however get smaller, but will not increase over 24 px.

Also I have comfired this with many icon sets so it is not the icon set.
Also confirmed this when Linux Mint, Ubuntu and Fedora.

How can I increase the size of the volume icon in the Indicator plugin?

Thanks

access the notification area preferences, you can set the max size there.

Thanks, but unfortunately that is not where I am talking about.
Yes that works for the Notification Plugin, but I am talking about the Indicator Plugin.
I wish that the Indicator plugin had the same settings to set the size like the Notification plugin does, but it doesn't.

I am still looking for a solution.

I am currently using xfce 4.10.0 on Linux Mint 14.

Thanks

http://mirror2.klaus-uwe.me/xfce/src/ap … .0.tar.bz2
/panel-plugin/xfce-volume-button.c:1063

in function xfce_volume_button_set_icon_size add line:
size = 22; /* size you want */


Install development packages (Fedora): yum install unique-devel libxfce4ui-devel xfce4-panel-devel libxfcegui4-devel
(and other if get configure errors)

./configure --prefix=/usr && make && sudo make install

Re: How can I increase the size of the volume icon in the Indicator Plugin

This won't work. "size" is just a size of the area allocated to the icon, so the only thing it will do is change the amount of clipping or padding of the icon.

Icons are provided by indicators themselves and at least with the current API it is not possible to request a different icon size. We used to do some scaling afterwards but it was CPU intensive, error-prone and ugly (unless you set a very small panel size clipped icons look better).
