Reload this Page Rows and Columns Spacing in Thunar

Hi
I am using Thunar as file manager. Originally the rows and columns spacing of Thunar is not according to my preference. So, in order to increase the spacing I used following contents in ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

style "thunar-spaced-out-icons"
{
  ThunarIconView::column-spacing = 70
  ThunarIconView::row-spacing = 30
}
class "ThunarIconView" style "thunar-spaced-out-icons"

and it worked fine. However, after last upgrade the above settings stopped working. After some searching I have found that now I need to edit ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini . And also that its syntax is different from .gtkrc-2.0. I have tried some variations like:

gtk-ThunarIconView-column-spacing=70
gtk-ThunarIconView-row-spacing=30

But without any success.
There are plenty of examples on internet regarding gtk-theme, icon-theme, icon-size etc. but I am unable to find my particular settings (regarding column/row spacing).
I believe that I have to convert my .gtk-2.0 syntax to gtk-3.0.
Kindly guide me towards correct syntax for settings.ini.
Thanks

Re: Reload this Page Rows and Columns Spacing in Thunar

Hello and welcome.

In theory, it should follow the pattern of "-ClassName-PropertyName: Value;" in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css. For example:

* {
-ThunarIconView-row-spacing: 7;
-ThunarIconView-column-spacing: 3;
}

...but this doesn't work for me with the GTK3 version of Thunar. I will keep investigating.

You might also consider asking the Thunar devs at the xfce4-dev mailing list to see if they can provide some insight.

It did not worked for me either. However, I have sent an email to xfce developers. Lets see if anyone of them helps us.

Found it.

* {
-ThunarAbstractIconView-row-spacing: 70;
-ThunarAbstractIconView-column-spacing: 30;
}

...but the values seem to need to be larger than your original values to have a similar effect.
