My question is directly related to How to change desktop icon size? and accepted answer.

Desktop icons zoom level randomly keep changing :

$ dconf read /org/gnome/nautilus/icon-view/default-zoom-level 

After changing value back to 'small' with dconf-editor, everything is back to normal for a while before it happens again with no obvious reason.


I had this as well, and found out that it's not randomly. The icons zoom with the last used view in Nautilus. I think the desktop icon size should be made independent from the nautilus icon size.
