    Default How to change icon size of widget in the bottom panel

    Hello

    I have installed gmail-plasmoid widget and added it to the panel.
    I'd like to change the icon a little bit, because it is too big.
    Have a look:


    I'd like to shrink 'mail' icon to 60-70% of it's actual size.

    I have OpenSuse 12.2
    KDE 4.8.5
    Linux 4.12.14
    openSUSE Leap 15.0 - 64 bit
    KDE Plasma 5.12.15
    KDE Framework 5.44.0
    Qt - 5.9.4

    I think you have to actually go and edit the icon itself. You could also
    just hide the icon and have it in the pop out menu but that might defeat
    the purpose of it. Personally though, for mail I use thunderbird and it
    notifies me when I receive a new email on any of my accounts.

    Icons are scalable, they are .svg
    I just need to force KDE to change that particular icon.

    I use Thunderbird, but then it means it has to run all the time to notify me.

    This small widget is just perfect solution for. It is somewhere down there and informs me when emails come. Then I go to TB to read them and answer.

    So is there a way to change/scale that icon?

    I think you will find that you cannot scale an icon relative to the other icons; if you open the panel by clicking on the cashew at the right, you should see a height mark in the middle of the panel which you can increase or decrease. That will cause all the icons to adjust their size.

    I guess you are right. I played with changing height and all icons changed too.
    But on my picture above I can see that other icons seem smaller.
    I think I'd have to play with icons themselves and adding extra white/transparent space around them - but it is too much work.

    I just thought it is possible to set in KDE
