Size of Cinnamon panel icons.

Post by jairoraiol » Wed Sep 04, 2019 5:14 pm

Hello everybody.

The Cinnamon panel does not show the icons on the left with the configured size.

For example, when I set the icon size to 24px, it actually appears with 22px or 20px depending on the icon theme.


Great work from the Linux Mint team.

Thankful.

Have you tried this? System settings>panel>Left panel zone icon size>scale to panel optimally.

Hello. Thanks for asking.

I went to “System Settings / Panel / Left Panel Zone Icon Size”.
However, I do not want to use the “Scale to panel optimally” option, as it is not pleasant for me, so I selected the “24px” option.

But when I looked at the result on the panel, I realized it looked smaller than 24px.
So I decided to confirm the size of the icons using an image editor.
The icons actually get smaller, ranging from 20px to 22px depending on the icon theme used.
That is, the size of the icon in the panel does not exactly match the selected option.

Grateful for any help.

I use the optimally setting. When I try the others, they are too exaggerated being too big or too small. I have a desktop with 27" monitor and the default is about right. On my 11.6" Asus laptop, I use default also. The icons are, of course smaller, but still scale the same as the desktop. Exactly what is you goal for appearance?

When I changed to 24px size I was more pleased with the look.

The only thing that is not correct is the fact that the icons on the panel did not get exactly 24px in size, they got slightly smaller. I confirmed this when I captured the screen and opened the image in GIMP to take the measurement.

Therefore, I am asking the icons to be exactly the size I chose in the configuration.

I also did a test selecting the size of 32px, and the same mismatch occurred.

Make the panel wider, see what happens then.
All things go better with Mint. Mint julep, mint jelly, mint gum, candy mints, pillow mints, peppermint, chocolate mints, spearmint,....

Good idea and maybe have both left and right set to scale to panel size optimally or some such winning combination :wink:
