Unity Tip:Change Unity Launcher Configuration settings

How do you access preferences for changing size of the launcher bar or icon size, etc?

Answer

Make sure you have the CompizConfig Settings Manager, which manages the settings for the plugins of the window manager including the Unity UI, installed:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Then run it from Preferences and find the Unity plugin, Choose ‘Experimental' tab.

Adjust the value of ‘Launcher Icon Size' by simple scrolling. The default value of ‘Launcher Icon Size' is 48, try to set the value around 40

  1. You can access the unity setting without CCSM, by typing in about:config in the run dialog (Alt+F2).

  2. Mohan, actually you do need CCSM. If you run about:config, infact it opens up unity plugin on CCSM.

  3. CCSM changes the icon size on the desktop launcher.
    Where can you change the icon size on the ‘shortcut’ page, they are the very large ones?

  4. So… why is it that there is a feature of the desktop that has a config tool… but the tool is not included by default?? Lame!
