Icon size small doesn't exist. Size too large in screen.

(1/2) > >>

Hi everybody,

I've installed C::B from pacman and all its requirements. But as said in the title, while configurating the options the Toolbar icon size options doesn't show small icons. It shows 16x16 as Normal ones, but no option for smalls. The icons in the toolbar look very big, and this is annoying to me. Is there any possibility to fix it and have smaller icons?

This is happening to me in Archlinux. I've installed C::B (an older version, 16.* from Ubuntu repo and the icons size is olay)

Also, here you have a link to some screenshots from my problem.

If you need some more information, I'll provide it. I would like to solve that problem, it is nothing important, but annoys me.

Thanks in advance!

It is obvious that the icon size is not the problem. It is clearly visible that there is plenty of padding around the images.

What happens if you make the Code-completion toolbar floating or if you hide it?
My guess is that the size of the toolbars is determined by the size of the two combo/choice controls.

What is the DPI of you monitor and/or the scaling factor you're using?


First of all, thanks for your help.

The padding around the images is still present. It doesnt matter which of the toolbars are showed.

--- Code: ---xdpyinfo | grep -B 2 resolution
screen #0:
  dimensions:    1366x768 pixels (361x203 millimeters)
  resolution:    96x96 dots per inch
--- End code ---
For what I read this could be scaling factor 1. I'm not using any DE, I use i3wm.

I dont know how to find exactly what monitor model my laptop has, because I think it was changed prior I bought it, It is an x220, but I think it has some mod in the display, because this display has more panoramic vision than others x220 I had. If you know how can I find that info, please tell me.

I've also tried changing my dpi resolution (increasing  it) but the padding scales also. As you have pointed, the problem could be the padding, as the icon size is correct, I didnt notice about that.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Not really.
I don't use gtk3, yet, so I have no idea about its quirks.
How does other gtk3 apps look like?
What about any other wxWidgets/wxGTK based apps?
Do they look ok?

With other applications, like filezilla, that depends on wxgtk the padding problem persists.
