Reduce Gnome Main Menu Icon Size


Recommended Posts

The toplevel menu bar (Application Places System) contains menu-item icons way too big, everytime I click over them the list displays like half of the screen. After a while checking with some themes, I can see they change the list smaller (it takes only 1/5 of the screen). I've found out because they make the icon size smaller.


I'm wondering how I can modify icon size on menu bar list?


Thanks for your support.

Ahh, you didn't give me a chance to answer! It's one of the few things I know!


You can share to me and others :)


My solution is to locate the controls theme, usually at : /usr/share/themes/Theme-Name/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Open gtkrc file with superuser right, then add this line at top if it doesn't exist:


gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16"


Logout and pick that theme :)


Anyway, I'm wondering if there is any way to reduce icon size on top panel (the one contains main menu bar) ?
