gnome panel icon size

After over 3 years of linux I've finally decided to give gnome a real try. Not sure why I've always ignored it for KDE/xfce/fluxbox/openbox etc. but I just have.

One thing I'm too lazy to have a proper look for is how to increase the size limit of application icons I place on the panel. By default it seems to be 64x64 pixels and I want it larger (either 96 or 128 depending on which one looks better).

Any ideas please?

BTW it's gnome 2.16.0 on opensuse 10.2

That's pretty big, but if I'm not mistaken, I think you right click the panel (as opposed to the icons themselves), click properties, and increase the pixel size of the panel itself there.

I'm not sure how big it's allowed to get. Alternatively, you can download an OS X-like GNOME dock app.



gnome, icon, panel
