Yesterday my Factory/Tumbleweed system got updates to Gnome 3.16.
Things seem to work in general, though there are some areas where
I still see room for improvement and/or need some help.
1. Design: The upstream Gnome designers still force title bars that
consume too much of my screen height upon me.
In the past I could hack the title_vertical_pad settings in
Now those XML-based schemes seem gone. How can I perform
such tweaking going forward?
2. Design: (Folder) icons on desktop are quite a bit larger
than previous, and way too large for my taste and needs.
However I failed to find a way to reducing their size again.
3. As in the past most of my Gnome Shell extensions stopped
Unlike the Gnome 3.12 to 3.14 upgrade, updating via TweakTool
actually is working now, a definite improvement.
However many extensions "broke" that actually did not. That is, just
hacking 3.16 into .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/*/metadata.json
made them work again. (And, yes, I also reported all such cases to
the upstream authors and they adjusted their extensions within hours.)
This remains a design failure that I hope is going to be addressed at
Any help with items 1 and 2 will be appreciated.
