    Oversized menu icons

    When I click on the Xfce4 menu, there are 2 icons that are larger than the other icons, which makes them render on top of other menu items. To be specific, they are Lone Survivor installed using software center and a custom Eclipse launcher using the eclipse icon provided by eclipse as downloadable on their website.

    I have this issue since I did a fresh install of Xubuntu 12.10. I did not have this problem when running Xubuntu 12.04 with Xfce4.10 from the ppa.

    I have exactly the same problem. The icons for eclipse and gv.

    gv seems to use a 50x50 pixmap as an icon. Have a look at the file /usr/share/applications/gv.desktop which states:
    Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/gv_icon.xpm
    To fix this, you could change the icon to /usr/share/pixmaps/mini-gv.xpm (also included in the gv package)
    Code:
    Icon=/usr/share/pixmaps/mini-gv.xpm
    ...or any other icon file by editing the desktop file as root:
    Code:
    gksu leafpad /usr/share/applications/gv.desktop
    The same might apply to eclipse. Have a look at /usr/share/applications/eclipse.desktop.

    Of you can do this but the point is that before the update the big icons were scaled to the correct size. I explicitly set in my .gtkrc-2.0 and .config/xfce4/.../xsettings.xml that I want 16x16 sizes but it doesn't obbey that.

    I see. Thanks for the info. I guess there is not much to do.
