Thread: Where is gnome-shell.css (need to resize icons)

  1. #1

    Default Where is gnome-shell.css (need to resize icons)

    In Leap gnome-shell.css is not in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme
    In fact, there is not even a directory theme by default.
    I tried installing gnome-classic and copying gnome-classic.css to gnome-shell.css
    but editing that has no effect on appearance.
    Also running find on almost all directories did not retrieve gnome-shell.css.
    Apparently gnome 3 on leap is not using this for configuration anymore
    or hiding it very well.
    I need to resize icons (they default sizes are annoyingly large)

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Thomas

    Which icons are you referring to?

    The Desktop icons -- I already set the zoom level to small in
    the nautilus preference -- but that is still too big for me.

    Thanks, Thomas

    I haven't looked closely at it, but I understand that you can resize the
    icons individually - I found (for example) this:

    https://askubuntu.com/questions/6580...cons-less-fat-
    on-gnome-3-16

    Which seems to provide a solution.

    Thanks for the reply -- that was what I meant with adjusting the Nautilus settings
    in the previous post. I am still hoping there is some way to access the css
    settings (or some other settings file) and make them yet smaller.
    Any hints appreciated and thanks for the help, Thomas

    In the end this seems to have been mainly a Nautilus problem -
    the fact that they thing 64 should be the smallest available icon
    size, which clearly gets a lot of people with small screens upset.
    (And besides, it is a sad state if a linux application is less
    customizable than the respective windows counterpart)
    This is also not the only reductions in features that Nautilus has
    decided on.

    The problem is now solved by switching to nemo.

    openSuse should consider officially supporting nemo -- perhaps
    completely dropping nautilus.
