    gnome - desktop - Nautilus


    Hi all,
    this my "problem":
    I would like to resize icons of my desktop.
    I did it in Naulitus, but it only allow me to set to 25/50/75/100%: is it possible it set to a custom value?
    And what about text under icons? How to change these sizes?

    Thanks.

    I don't know about resizing icons, but change the font size in gnome's font preferences.

    stretch icons

    right-click on the icon and click stretch icon. it will give you resizing handles to stretch your icons to whatever size you want.

    That's really window manager dependent, and I don't think that GNOME has required such functionality by compliant window managers.

    I may be wrong about this but I think Gnome actually uses Sawfish as its default window manager in most distros and ive never seen a way to add that kind of functionality to the taskbar.

    GNOME2 has an applet that does this. It just loops through the windows in the windowlist (anything that shows up on the taskbar) and minimizes them I think. Also, GNOME2's default WM has changed from the bloated sawfish, to the lightweight, yet not as extensible metacity (pronounced like opacity)
