Desktop and file manager icon size issue

Bug #15087 reported by Alberto Torres on 2005-04-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

In konqueror, you can see icons are about 64x64, and desktop icons are 32x32.
In the kcontol icon module, the desktop and file manager icon size is set to
32x32, but it affects only to the desktop, maybe because the size option in
konqueror is saved in the profile or somewhere else.

IMHO, in today's computers, 32x32 is a bit small and 64x64 is too big for what
users are used to. I think the ideal size is 48x48 for both places.

Using: Kubuntu 5.04 release candidate install cd for i386

I agree with you on that point.
In my view the icon size should be the same in both konqueror and the desktop.
Will discuss this with jonathan toonight.

This has been changed at least temporary...
We will decide during the next meeting what is the best setting to use for icons size.
My opinion is to let them synched to the Desktop, but not everyone agrees so... :)
