I've installed version 10.0 on a few of my servers and due to the
large console monitor (19") my desktop standard icons are HUGE.
I know in my prior version (9.3) I was able to adjust the pixel size
to make them smally however I cannot seem to locate where to do this
in version 10.0.
So, can someone please point me to where that can be done???
Control Center>Appearance and Themes>Icons>Advanced should get it for ya.
You can control the size of icons in the file manager (Konqueror), the
desktop and other 'components' separately. As a side note, GNOME makes it
somewhat easier as you can extend the size of icons individually.
If I recall correctly, there are three such components if you follow the
route above (I am still on 9.x and 8.x, so I can't tell for sure). I per-
sonally prefer large (128x128 pixels) icons on my Desktop because previews
of ASCII files, PDF's, and thumbnails of images make it a good reflectant
of content that is worked on. Just ensure you move commonly-used programs
to the panels or use keyboard accelerators. Don't over-inflate the Desktop
with files either. It's only an evolving personal preference, of course.
