Question gnome 3 icon size?


How do you change the icon size of both sidebar (where your favorites are) and the icons in the "show application"?

I've tried messing with /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css

I lowered the following:

.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 10px /*was 96px*/
}

it hasn't had an affect on icon size. I've also mesed with .icon-grid css class and it did modify the size of the actual grid but the icon sizes are still huge.

try reducing the icon size by half, e.g. 48px.

Thanks for the reply but unfortunately that didn't do anything. Icons are still huge.
