I have strange problem. My Wallch icon is huge. See the screenshot:

enter image description here

I removed XFCE settings and reordered items a little. How can I restore normal Wallch icon size?


My /usr/share/applications/wallch-nautilus.desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Change desktop wallpapers automatically
Exec=/usr/bin/wallch %U


[Desktop Action Change_Wallpaper]
Name=Change Wallpaper Once
Exec=/usr/bin/wallch --change

[Desktop Action Start]
Name=Start/Stop Wallpapers
Exec=/usr/bin/wallch --start

And the /usr/share/pixmaps/wallch.png:

I don't use XFCE, but I recommend 1. Removing and readding whatever Wallch is to your panel; and 2. Investigating the XFCE panel config files. – blujay Apr 28 '14 at 5:27
@blujay I was able to solve the problem. See the answer. – Danatela Apr 28 '14 at 6:22

I was able to set my wallch icon size to normal. How I did that:

  1. Opened /usr/share/wallch/files/indicator_radiance_normal.png in Gimp.
  2. Resized it to 24x24. Saved the original as indicator_radiance_normal_64x64.png and the edited as indicator_radiance_normal.png
  3. Restarted Wallch.

Now it looks exactly how it should:

Also, I posted bugreport and it came out that it is not a Wallch bug, but xfce4-indicator-plugin bug.

Nicely done. Seems like a bug though: it should have resized the image appropriately. You might consider filing it as a bug on Launchpad or wherever wallch bugs are tracked. – blujay Apr 28 '14 at 6:25
OK, I will submit bugreport. – Danatela Apr 28 '14 at 6:31
That's not a Wallch bug. It is a XUbuntu bug. I talked to them on IRC about it. – hakermania Apr 29 '14 at 12:51
@hakermania, I am Hopungo Semi-bit on Launchpad ;) – Danatela Apr 29 '14 at 23:08
