After searching for a solution for a few days, I believe that this could be a bug. After increasing the height of the xfce-panel I noticed, that the icons of the window buttons remained small. Because this looks stupid and makes recognizing the icons harder than it has to be I want to increase the icon size of the window buttons of my xfce4-panel. I am running Linux Mint 14 Xfce, but this should affect everyone running Xfce 4.10.
The xfce docs tell me that I "can set a custom icon size in gtk-icon-sizes with the name panel-tasklist-menu. The default icon size is 16px". -- Source.
As far as I can tell this can be done in a few different ways:
Using the graphical Settings Editor to customize the settings stored by Xfconf to add in the xsettings the Property IconSizes
panel-tasklist-menu=32,32(Or maybe just
~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xsettings.xmldirectly, doing basically the same thing
Adding this to the
gtkrcof my theme (
As you can guess nothing worked. Now after a while of blind trial&error trying to guess the correct way to define the icon size, I surrender. I was able to change the size of pretty much all the other icons on the panel, but still the size of the window button icons eludes me.
Has anyone an idea how I can increase the icon size of the xfce4-panel window buttons? Or should I send a bug report?
