I am using Oneiric. I have Unity 4.28 installed. I have also installed CCSM, Ubuntu Tweak, Dconf tools and MyUnity. I have tried resizing the launcher icons using these tools, but none of them are having the desired effect.

It would help if any one could provide suggestions on how to resolve this issue.

Probably because you're in a unity-2d session. Open a terminal, copy & paste this command in, press enter. Unity (3d) will return ubuntu, unity-2d will mean just that


unity-2d doesn't support launcher resize yet, it's possible but that's another question.


Open CompizConfig Settings Manager. Go to Ubuntu Unity Plugin and go to tab Experimental.
Launcher icon size is the option you need.


Well this worked for me in 12.04. I have to use Unity-2D on my old laptop.
