Icons on desktop disappear when resized to certain values

Bug #48924 reported by Epakai on 2006-06-07
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Xfce4 Desktop
Fix Released
xfdesktop4 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Icons disappear when increasing size. In particular 82 pixels for me.
If resized lower and the configuration dialog is closed their text will appear and mousing over them causes the icon to reappear.

Thanks for your report. One of your ideas (point #1) might get more attention and have the possibility of being implemented if you would submit a specification for this.

You should first check whether it already exists at the Ubuntu specs
page (https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+specs) in Launchpad. If
that is the case, feel free to contact the drafter of that spec about
your comments/suggestions. Otherwise you can start writing a spec
following the steps described in

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug. Unfortunately, we are not able to fix and find the bug (point #2) because your description of the bug didn't have enough information in it. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively",

We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description
of the problem. Specifically, where are setting the icon size? Also, could you please attach your /etc/X11/xorg.conf incase this is an x-server related issue?

Hi, I found where you set the settings (settings >> desktop >> behavior) and I can confirm that the icons disappear/act very funky with the higher sizes.

I have moved point #1 to https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/xfdesktop4/+bug/58415 as a bug report should only address one issue.
