I don't like the large (128px) icons used in Kupfer, how can I configure it to use smaller icons?

The theming documentation suggests it can be done.

I've duplicated the built in plugin into ~/.local/share/kupfer/plugins/ and tried adding this code to the "dark" definition:

## force small icons

But that doesn't seem to change the icon size.

I had the same problem, so I googled,And it turned out, that I could edit this file:

sudo nano /usr/share/kupfer/kupfer/

Changed variable

LARGE_SZ = 128



I hope it was helpful. Greetings from Debian!
