Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 118407
Icons on desktop are too big
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:38 EST
Description of problem: Desktop, taskbar icons are huge, even in great
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): all
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install fedora
2. log in
3. look at your screen - looks like an old amiga plugged into a tv :-)
the icons occupy too much space
the icons could be reasonable tinyer.
setting taksbar for, say, 24 pixels, is way more reasonable than the
actual size. The standard icon view could be 75% of the actual size.
And the list view can be 50% of the actual size.
Not everyone uses 2600x2048 displays :-) It seems too big even in
I won't change this. If you really want to have this discussion, take
it upstream to the gnome project.
Why not? Ain't you guys at redhat changed the gnome visual radically
so it would be better for users?
