gap between launchers in panel [SOLVED]

Postby Vito49 on Thu Apr 11, 2013 3:55 am

Hello, I switched back from LM KDE and installed LMDE 201303, both Cinnamon and Mate in a dual-boot.
Everything looks nice and works great (Mate also but I prefer Cinnamon) but one thing that bothers me is the very small gap between the launchers in the quick launch panel (left). In fact I think there is no gap at all, and dragging doesn't work, the icons always go back against each other.

So my Cinnamon question is:
Is there a way to increase the gap between these icons? No problem if I have to change some code, I can handle that if explained extendedly :lol:

Many thanks.

Your cinnamon theme can control this. Find the cinnamon.css file for the theme you are using and open it. There will be a section within the css for the panel launchers applet. In that section you should fine something like this:

Code: Select all
.panel-launcher {
   margin: 1px;
   padding: 1px;
}


I added this line to mine which adds some extra padding between the icons:

Code: Select all
.panel-launcher {
   margin: 1px;
   padding: 1px;
   padding-left: 5px;
}


The padding-left value controls the gap. Just set this to the size that you like. Then save the file and restart cinnamon to see it take affect. Hopefully that does what you need.

OK, this is the solution, looks much prettier now.
Thanks!
