This is my second question about theming an indicator-applet.

With the theme I'm using (FlatStudio,it doesn't matter if Grey, Dark etc...), there is one small annoying bug: The distance between the icon for the battery and the text is too small (See screenshot). The same thing happens for the online-status icons...

What css files do I have to edit, in order to increase this distance?

icon too close to label

Append these lines to /usr/share/themes/FlatStudio/gtk-3/menu_frame.css:

/* Add right padding for all child images in menu items */
.menuitem GtkImage {
    padding-right: 4px;

/* Remove padding for last last icon, like the one in session indicator */
.menuitem GtkImage:last-child {
    padding-right: 0px;

Samething for other variant themes dark, blue,.. This is a screenshot with 25px (just to make it clear)

fix icon padding in flatstudio theme
