Bug Description

I am on Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal 64bit.

In system settings -> Appearance -> Look is under Ubuntu 12.04 Precise the Option "Size of the start symbols", which allow to increase(and decrease) the size of symbols is the unity launcher panel.

In Ubuntu 12.10-Quantal this option is not there.

That is very bad for visual impaired users!

Or even for those who have just glasses that do not correct the view complete(this is like this in most cases - technical not more archivable).


The scrool bar for adjusting the size of the start symbols should brought back.

Thank you for your bug report, neither gnome-control-center nor unity changed yet, are you sure you don't use unity-2d which doesn't support that option? Could you add your .xsession-errors to the bug?

Aha, I have not know that unity-2D does not provide this feature.

In this case please mark this as wish. Also the 2D variant should give me a chance to see what is on the monitor.


What the .xsession-erros affect. I gave nautilus a run on, but could not find such on the whole filesystem(even when searching for hidden files).

I attach the xorg logs. When you want other, please give me the exact path.
