kicker buttons too small!


The icons in my kpanel won't get any larger than 32x32 when I resize the panel (I use 'large' by default). I've tried sizing the panel down, then to absurdly large custom sizes-- still, the buttons get no larger than 32.

Oh, I'm running SuSE 9.1 professional.

And icon size should be 48x48. I've been googling for a fix for a while. There doesn't seem to be a config file for this... is there?

Have you tried using the custom setting where you can then change the pixel size of the icons?

Custom size of the icons? Where?

I have, maybe, tried to do this with the Control Center (under Appearance & Themes-->Icons-->Advanced-->Panel), but the size menu is grayed-out.

I think you are talking about the "system tray" icons. The regular kicker app icons should resize as big as you want them. I don't know how to resize the systray icons.

If it's the Panel icons you want to resize click on the panel and select 'configure panel' option from the menu that pops up. From there you can select the size from tiny to large or custom. If you use custom then you can set the pixel size yourself.

If it's the system tray icons then I'm sorry, like /bin/bash I don't know how to resize them.

What I want to resize are the kmenu button, home folder, and terminal icons. NOT the system tray icons.

Right-click-->configure panel-->size is what is not working for me. The button icons used to be 48x48, but now get no bigger than 32x32, regardless of panel size. There must be a way to fix this...
