How to resize bottom bar in Cinnamon

Postby 206airmail » Mon Jan 02, 2012 1:21 pm

I was wondering if it was possible to resize the bottom bar in Cinnamon, my eyes are not the greatest so a bigger bar would be nice. Anybody know of a way?

I increased mine from 24 to 30 by navigating to /usr/share/cinnamon/theme/cinnamon.css and scrolling down to panel info [can't remember for sure what line it is but I think it is something like 556]. You can change font size and panel size there. After you make your changes, click on "save" and exit. To see the changes, I hit alt+f2 > r then hit enter. I agree that 24 is a bit too small for panel size :wink:

Well, that worked, other then it pushed the bar down so it really did not help any (there is still only 25 px of the bar showing, any thoughts?

I failed to tell you that you have to run either the default theme or elaganse. If I try any of the shell themes I have installed, I get what you have. I am using the eleganse theme specifically made for cinnamon and it works perfectly. I found it on gnome-look.org :wink:
