[Solved] Change size of desktop pop-up menu icons

Hello, I'm a XFCE lover.
I was wondering if I can change the size of the icons of the launcher menu that you have when right-click on the desktop.
I use it a lot, way more than the classical menu, but I have problems to see the little icons.
Thank you for helping.

Re: [Solved] Change size of desktop pop-up menu icons

There is nothing specific to xfdesktop where you can configure this setting. However, you can use gtk2's gtk-icon-sizes property to affect the size of icons in ALL gtk-menu icons. To do so, go to Settings Manager > Settings Editor and on the xsettings channel for the /Gtk/icon-sizes (String) property add "gtk-menu=32x32". If a value already exists there, append this to the end separated by a : (colon). You can change the 32x32 but there is an upper limit (I think 64).

Re: [Solved] Change size of desktop pop-up menu icons

Try "gtk-menu=32x32" and "gtk-menu=48x48" to see if changes. Perhaps size 64 icons aren't supported.

Greetings!

A while back i had downloaded (but not installed) the OP's "Papirus" icon set. To be of some help here, I looked in its archive just now and can confirm that the usual icon sizes are supported (16x16, 22x22, 24x24, 32x32, 48x48, 64x64 & Symbolic), and each size also comes in a high-dpi version (ie 48x8@2x).

Cheers, m4a

Re: [Solved] Change size of desktop pop-up menu icons

I tried all your suggestions, but nothing worked.
I'm sorry.
Anyway now I'm getting used, so it is not a real problem anymore.
Thank you.

Re: [Solved] Change size of desktop pop-up menu icons

My apologies, I just realized there is a typo there. The parameter should be:

gtk-menu=48,48

...note the , (comma) instead of the x.

It supports all the way up to 512 as per the available icon sizes that mint4all references.

I set "gtk-menu=24,24" and it's gold for my eyes!
Thank you.

Thank you again

Thanks a lot for looking into this! I've successfully tweaked my system, and the larger icons in the menu are easier to recognize and look well-balanced with my choice of menu-font.

In addition, i've successfully added the ":gtk-button=28,28" option with the result that the panel-buttons' icons  in my launchers are a bit larger, thus appear more refined; moreover the various context menus are a bit larger as well, and the various action-buttons' images on the popup-windows finally display the icon theme's REAL images, and not just the down-graded/default 16x16px images.

All in all -- a great result! Kudos to Xfce's tweakability smile

Cheers, m4a
