I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Unity 2D on my netbook. I will see Dash home full screen (main menu on all display). How can I change its width?

MyUnity allows you to make many customizations to Unity including changing the Dash size. OMGUbuntu has several good articles here


You may be able to find info here for editing the configuration directly. I'm not at my Ubuntu box right now, so I can't tell you if gconfeditor has settings for the Dash's size.

Thanks! I don't like to install several apps in my system. I want to change this property in file by my hands. – Sergey Oct 20 '12 at 15:27
See my edit, it links out to an answer on how to configure Unity using out-of-the-box tools – Kyle Macey Oct 20 '12 at 15:59
