How to change desktop icon [text] size

  9 years ago

(I'm using this in Mint 16 Cinnamon, and not sure about anything, anywhere else on Mint or GNOME. I'd appreciate any comment saying how general is this method)


Install dconf-tools using the Software Manager. Run dconf Editor, Go to these sections, edit these variables to achieve your interests:

org > nemo > desktop >        (font)

org > nemo > icon view >     (default-use-tighter-layout)

Not similar, Francis; using exactly "this". Read it again... the last variable I mentioned is what you want.

Nice tutorial, Can I change the size of the desktop icons using something similar to this?
