Gnome GNOME 2.12 will be released to the world on September 7th, 2005, culminating 6 months of very exciting work by members of the project. A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

Icon sizing

Is there a way to set a default size of the icons(-toolbar) (Menu icons, desktop icons, nautilus icons, ...) or maby it is the icon toolbar which is way to high (50px). In my opinion the height of th icon toolbar should by dynamic with the possibility to scale it down to e.g. 20px. My notebook has a 15" display at 1024x768 resolution and I don't like to waste too much space for too big toolbars. Firefox has also the possibility to switch between big and small Icon size -> toolbar. Why not GNOME too?

but all in all I like GNOME and am looking forward to use the new GNOME 2.12 as soon as it is ready

try: go to system-> preferences-> fonts-> details and switch the Resolution to 80 or something, the icons and the tollbar will be smaller

thanks for the tip. But I have done this already, I set it to 77. I guess it shuld be fixed at ui design time. The toolbar is much higher (50px) than the icons (25px)
