  • This is very strange! Have you tried apt-get install --reinstall totem? Or install unity-tweak-tool and try a different icon theme. – Jos Apr 22 '14 at 20:24
  • Thank you It hasn't occurred to me to do the reinstall. It solved. – Mohammad_Hosseini Apr 22 '14 at 20:32

  • Re-installing does NOT fix it - help? – user283900 May 21 '14 at 15:18

Something messed up with your icon set for totem. Just reinstall it with:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall totem

    I tried the same solution but it didn't work. I still get huge icons – Eyad Salah Apr 25 '14 at 21:19

    try auto remove then install it again and see if it's ok! – Mohammad_Hosseini Apr 26 '14 at 8:08
  • @ComputerJy Worked for me. Try uninstalling totem with sudo apt-get purge totem; sudo apt-get autoremove, then install again with sudo apt-get install totem. – imolit Feb 13 '15 at 12:19

Patch code below to totem3.10.1, will fix this annoying problem.

It may cause other display problems as i haven't run a full test
