I'm not sure where I need to go to tweak this icon text being so far offset. Please see the screenshot below:

enter image description here

I'm using Xubuntu 16.04 64-bit with Arc theme and Paper icon theme.

EDIT: This happens when the update shown below is applied. Here's a link to patch causing the problem.

    same problems as this (but no answer to this one yet...) – Zanna Jul 15 '16 at 5:49

Here's the bug related to the issue: gtk2-engines-murrine desktop text shadow problem

Until that's fixed, I downgraded to the previous version of the package

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-murrine=0.98.2-0ubuntu2

Then to prevent the package manager from automatically updating the package in the future

sudo echo "gtk2-engines-murrine hold" | sudo dpkg --set-selections
  • There seems to be a patch out now (0.98.2-0ubuntu2.2) that fixes this. I haven't tried it yet. I did the above "hold" fix on the package and that worked fine. How can I now remove the hold and install the newest version? – Ole Thomsen Buus Sep 26 '16 at 11:30
