The screen at 1920x1080 with tiny gnome icon. Almost unreadable, can the icons be bigger? KDE has excellent icons but for some mystery the system cannot run KDE. All gnome, not just ubuntu, have 10.4 now runs excellent need to keep it.

Soon to switch to larger monitor, but those icons...Tried cairo icons, no use, trouble.

Ubuntu :: How To Make Folder Icon To Appear Bigger

Jan 24, 2010

I've made some of my own icons in Gimp and saved them as .pngs. The problem is, when I use them they always appear smaller than the system default icons. Is there no way to make them as the same size as the system icons? I read somewhere that GNOME (which is what I use) uses .png .svg and .xpm. I am only able to save as .png with GIMP, is there a way to get .svg and .xpm extension capabilities with GIMP?

These are the icons (only two):
1. HJ-Split Folder
2. Blood Frontier Folder

Is there maybe a specific way to make folder icons that I am not following? Using Ubuntu 9.10, Desktop edition.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Makes Resolution Much Bigger

Jun 14, 2010

Why gnome would make my resolution so much bigger than it actually is (2x my native). I can actually use the other half of my screen. I have to scroll over to the left half, and then I can work like normal. If I wanted to have a black screen, I can drag the courser over to the far right and have my screen be entirely black. I cannot open anything in the black part of the screen.

Fedora :: Fonts Very Small Relative To Rest Of System / Make Them Bigger?

Feb 12, 2010

I'm helping a colleague with his laptop, he finds the fonts within programs too small and they hurt his eyes. We have tried changed the fonts using System>Appearances>Fonts. Changed the dpi resolution in the "Details" section, and tried changing the screen resolution, but this doesn't work or make it better.

I have attached a screen shot to show the problem. As I hope you can see, the font size on the desktop and top tool bar is much larger than within the programs.

Can anyone help, we have looked through all of the menus we can think of, but nothing makes the font bigger.

Ubuntu :: How To Use Gnome Icons In KDE Applications

Jan 18, 2011

I run Gnome and i want KDE applications to use the same icon set as i have for my Gnome desktop. I have searched the file system and found a folder called "default.kde4" in /usr/share/icons. I assume this is where KDE applications pull their icons from. Firstly, this folder is a linked folder. How do i find out where the original folder that it is linked to is? Secondly, i am assuming, that the KDE icons won't be a name for name match for the icons i am using in Gnome (Faenza just in case anyone is curious). What is the easiest way to get the KDE icons changed for the one's i am using in Gnome?

Ubuntu :: Change Size Of Gnome Icons?

Jun 29, 2010

I'm sorry if this is a trivial question.
I want to know how the size of the gnome icons in toolbars (see pic) is specified. Those icons for 'new', 'open', 'save', ... that are used in Nautilus or Gedit.
I just played around with the gtkrc of my theme, but I couldn't find any option there. Aren't the icons scaleable? Are there smaller icon sets available?

Ubuntu Installation :: No GNOME Panels Or Icons?

Jan 22, 2011

After a new installation of Ubuntu 10.10 (regular or alternative) I get to the login screen as usual. However, after logging in I get no panels or icons. In fact, I only get the Ubuntu background and a working mouse cursor. The same happens when I try Ubuntu from the live CD (with a black background). The installation itself was performed in a high resolution with no problems at all! I got a panel there (for sound, wireless, etc.).

After installation I can also Ctrl-Alt-F1 to login textually to see my processes. When I restart GDM I will get back to the login screen, but I after visually logging in I again see no panels or icons! Where should I start with a working visual installation and login screen, but a blank desktop environment after login?

Reinstalling or creating another user will not work.
