    Changing window button icon size on xfce4-panel

    I'm trying to increase the size of Window Button icons in xfce 4.8's panel.

    I tried adding the following to ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

    Code:
    style "xfce-tasklist-style"
    {
    XfceTasklist::max-button-size = 70
    }
    class "XfceTasklist" style "xfce-tasklist-style"
    This only seems to work when "Show Button Labels" setting is not selected. When the window buttons have text, the icons go back to being small. Is there a way increase the icon size when the window buttons have text labels?

    they adjust when you adjust the panel size:

    right-click the panel >> panel >> panel preferences >> the size is somewhere on one of those tabs

    Thanks black veils. That doesn't seem to change the size of the icons though.

    This is what I'm trying to do:

    Re: Changing window button icon size on xfce4-panel

    I'm trying to do this as well. Furthest I came was this ominous line in the xfce documentation:
    You can set a custom icon size in gtk-icon-sizes with the name panel-tasklist-menu. The default icon size is 16px.
    http://docs.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/tasklist

    I tried to do this by changing

    Code:
    <property name="IconSizes" type="empty" />
    to
    Code:
    <property name="IconSizes" type="string" value="gtk-menu=32,32:gtk-button=32,32:panel-applications-menu=32,32:panel-directory-menu=32,32:panel-tasklist-menu=32,32"/>
    in

    ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xsettings.xml

    Effectively changing the size of most of the icons except those in my panel...

    Hope you find out how to do this,not only for your sake, but it bugs me also. Even tried editing my themes gtkrc file.

    gtk-icon-sizes = "gtk-large-toolbar=16,16: gtk-small-toolbar=16,16: panel-menu=16,16: gtk-button=16,16" # This enables "compact-mode".

    Tried changing the first numbers from 16,16 to 32,32. Saved the file & rebooted, Same thing, tiny icons still. Even commented the line out. Same thing! Durn it.

    I'm a man, I can re-install, if I have to, I guess!

    Re: Changing window button icon size on xfce4-panel

    I didn't try the gtkrc in my theme until now. If something should work, I figure it would be:
    Code:
    gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-tasklist-menu=32,32"
    But of course this didn't work as well. I also tried to add this to ~/gtkrc-2.0 with no success. I believe this could be a bug.
    I opened a questing on askubuntu and will wait if someone there can help. If this fails as well I will contact the author of the tasklist-widget. :I
