MATE keyboard led indicator

Post by Reaccion Raul » Tue Aug 28, 2018 10:16 am

Hi,

I've been checking lately MATE desktop, and i like it. A question i got, are there anyway to make the Keyboard LED Indicator smaller? or any other app i could use? It's useful but really big icons, it contrast a lot with the rest of right side applets. You can activate it with DCONF, writing the following on terminal:

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.mate.peripherals-keyboard-xkb.general duplicate-leds true

The icons are found in /usr/share/mate-settings-daemon/icons/hicolor/64x64/devices. One easy way to effectively shrink them is to increase the canvas size without modifying the icons themselves, but you can also replace them with completely different icons. In my case I modified the -off icons to make them smaller but left the -on icons at full size. I can recommend 125% canvas size.
