Re: Easy tweak to change XFCE desktop icon alignment

Yep thats a fair comment and 'amazing' is a subjective point of view .... I have always had an issue with the default spacing of the desktop icons and the look of the icon text ... anyhow here is a screenshot of my desktop :)

Let me know what you think
