I know how to change the appearance and size of the launcher icons via GUI; however, in 14.04LTS I used

dconf write /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/icon-size 18

To adjust the size and it worked via command line. My problem is that doesn't seem to work in 16.04 because dconf tools aren't installed.

I would like to use the native gsettings and change it that way. I found this for the launcher move from left to bottom

gsettings set com.canonical.Unity.Launcher launcher-position Bottom.

But I can't find anything to adjust the icon size



That one is really tricky (I had to look at the code of unity-control-center to find it). It is

gsettings set org.compiz.unityshell:/org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/ icon-size <SIZE>

Hope that helps.
