Icons in Nautilus are the same size as on the desktop which feels way too big. For a session the icons can be made smaller with the menu in the top-bar of Nautilus, which also makes the desktop icons smaller. Value is stored in ~/.config/nautilus/desktop-metadata.

Agreed. I'm not surprised, given that icons on the desktop are managed by Nautilus.

For a session the icons can be made smaller with the menu in the top-bar of Nautilus, which also makes the desktop icons smaller. Value is stored in ~/.config/nautilus/desktop-metadata.

Thanks!

To me it seems the icon size is determined by the dconf setting org/gnome/nautilus/icon-view default-zoom-level. By default it's 'large', but 'small' (eq. to 50% zoom) will give something more similar to what we had in Jessie. It will also affect the icon size in nautilus "the file browser", but that will in fact also make it look more like in Jessie -- in Stretch the icons are obnoxiously large. So, imho, we should set this value to 'small' and kill two birds in one stone (even if it means deviating from GNOME/Debian defaults).

Yes. Please go ahead.

I think I fixed that in #11798.

I think I fixed that in #11798.

#11798 seems pretty much unrelated, so I wonder if you commented on the wrong ticket, or pointed to the wrong ticket.

Besides, it seems that anonym has fixed it already in 90e2257.
