Launcher not displayed after edit to reduced icon size

Asked by david williams on 2012-08-16

Have editted Shell.qml, IconTile.and LauncherList.qml.

To reduce sice of Icons( as suggested for unity-2d.)

Cannot see where I have gone wrong.

Can I reload/renew relevant package?

Do I have to run something to accept the changes I have made. ( I am new to Ubunto in a technical way)

As Ubuntu newbie i suggest you to read this useful manual

Many thanks.
I have sorted out the problem. It took me over a day of trying but eventually sorted by reinstalling " unity-2d-Shell"
I have learnt alot on the way to the solution though.

Note:- Reinstalling unity2d did not correct the problem.

i always use this script to change size of icon in unity-2d


chmod +x

From terminal type:

sudo ./ xx

Where the xx is the icon size in pixel we want (default is 48 px)

To resize the icons to 32 px we must type:

sudo ./ 32

sudo ./ 32; killall unity-2d-shell unity-2d-panel

Thanks again.

I have copied your info. and will certainly give it a go, but will wait a few weeks before using.
