Mint KDE update manager icon too small


Hi guys. Thanks for looking

I'm setting up Linux Mint 13 KDE for my mother and the Update Manager icon is too small for her to see - it doesn't scale with all the other icons when you change the height of the panel. Is there some way I can make it bigger?

Thanks for the reply!

I dragged update manager from the App Launcher onto the desktop (as well as the panel), but although the icon is larger it doesn't display any information (the green checkmark or the blue sheild).

I'm starting to think that this is KDE specific because I installed Mate in a VM and the icon is scaleable. /usr/lib/linuxmint/mintUpdate/icons/ is the same on both KDE and Mint.

Thanks, but KDE lacks that feature. It seems the icon size in the system tray is fixed at 24x24 for backwards compatibility reasons
