(SOLVED) How to increase systemtray icon size?


What is your suggestion for increasing the size of icons in the KDE system tray?

(SOLVED) How to run Dolphin as root?

Next time, please start a new thread for separate issues, It makes things easier to find later.

Now, to answer your query.
Edit your ~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc file
After every line that commences with extraItems=, add a new line with iconSize=2
Then restart plasmashell:

kquitapp5 plasmashell && kstart5 plasmashell

The systemtray icons should now match the other icons on the panel, and have a much higher size limit when adjusting the panel height. If not, then just change the number in the iconSize= line, until your desired size limit is found.

Note: You may need to use Ctrl+c in the terminal if you get verbose output after the commands are run.


I have noted your advisory and explanation for changing the size of icons in KDE system tray.
