[Bug 527267] Re: Application Indicators too wide


I played around a bit with some theme settings. Ted is actually right as
the indicator-application uses a theme setting to generate the spacing
around the icons. If you put or change the following line in the default
style in your theme's gtkrc the gap between the icons in the panel
should disappear (make sure that it is nor overwritten by another style

GtkMenuItem::horizontal-padding = 0

However, this setting also affects the menu which looks quite ugly
afterwards (no spacing between menu items). To avoid this you can put
the following line in the style which is assigned to GtkMenuItem:

xthickness = 5

I think this value should be increased by the same amount as horizontal-
padding was reduced.

Bug description:
the Application Indicators applet is wider than the regular systray.

3 Indicators icons are slightly bigger than 4 tray icons, incl. the left part.
See the screenshot. The two highlighted boxes are ~100 pixels wide.

With more applications moving to the app indicator, it will result in less usable space in the panel, which in my case is already pretty full.
