[SOLVED] Cinnamon panel with very small icons?

Postby jungle_boy on Fri Apr 27, 2012 8:53 pm

Hello all linuxminters;

I uninstalled Isadora and trying LMDE 201204, and I am loving it!

I am using cinnamon, because I think that it is better than gnome shell, but I am trying to increase the panel icons size because there are very small, the battery icon have three millimeters and it is hard to say some battery information; the other icons too;

Please, how can I increase the size of the icons?

Thanks!

Change to a theme with bigger panel icon settings - you're not forced to use the default.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

You can also go to Preferences>Cinnamon Settings>Panel and select "Use customized panel size" along with "Allow Cinnamon to scale panel text and icons according to the panel heights" and then bump up the panel height. I had tried to change the panel size without noticing the latter option, but then everything scaled as expected :D
