I am trying to get the launcher icons to be a smaller size, the launcher to be less opaque, and the launcher to be fixed and never disappear off the left of the screen.

But...when I go into Compiz-->Ubuntu Unity Plugin (enabled)-->Experimental move the "Panel Opacity" and "Launcher Icon Size" icons left and right doesn't do anything.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

The Launcher icon size can be changed diretly from System Settings >> Appearance. – Nirmik May 17 '12 at 14:43
  1. After changing the options in Compiz, logout the system and login again to make the changes.
  2. Or you can use Ubuntu Tweak which does the same things and which is very much reliable.
