[ubuntu] Changing icon size in Unity 2d Ubuntu 12.04

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello all; I have an older Toshiba laptop which will not run Unity 3d and is right now letting me try out 12.04. I spent some time this weekend figuring out how to edit the .qml files to allow a smaller set of icons and therefore more of them in the launcher, and I thought I'd offer the changes here for anyone else interested. Note that there is the possibility of screwing up the Unity 2d environment by editing the .qml files so if you decide to try this, you should make a backup (copy the files in question with a different name before you edit, for example) and of course be very care (Hardware)
