    Question 12.04 - changing unity launcher icon size ...

    Hello,

    just figured that this other thread with the "same" question is actually dealing with unity 2d.

    But I am wondering: how on earth do I change the launcher size using 12.04 and "normal" unity?

    I know of two options:
    a) previously, one would use the compiz config manager, unity desktop plugin
    b) Google tells me that there is a new slider in the appearance settings

    But well:
    on a) ... changing that number in the config manager - doesnt have any effect.
    on b) ... there is no such slider when I open that settings window

    So, how on earth I am supposed to change the launcher icon size?

    The MyUnity app didn't work for me but after playing with the settings I found it in the Appearance Settings at the bottom of the window.

    Right Click on desktop => Change Desktop Background => Bottom of the window.

    Thanks for the pic ssherwood but "Launcher icon size" does not appear here. I assume I am using the basic unity - do not know much about this - it is just as default installed.

    Ye I've switched to Unity 2D and there is no icon launcher setting in 2D so on the login screen you need to change the Desktop Environment to Ubuntu and NOT Ubuntu 2D, do this by clicking on the Ubuntu icon next to your name on the login screen.

    Thanks but I do not have a very powerful computer and am on dialup and I assume 3d will take more resources (also I am the only one that uses this computer so no login screen) so I think I will stay as is with the large icons. It's no biggie . But thanks alot for your time.
    Best wishes...
