Setup: Recent Fedora 20, Gnome Desktop

Hardware: Fujitsu S904, 13,3" 2560x1440 ca. 220dpi

Gnome Texts, Windows(Borders,Min/Max Window) and Gnome Icons itself are looking incredible nice.

BUT Application Icons of Firefox (Home, Reload...), VLC (Play, Pause...) are very tiny. I played around with gnome-tweak-tool, Scaling and different font sizes didn't solve this problem.

A Solution for this would be very nice!

i would say this is because you are running a 2560*1440 resolution on a 13,3" screen. a high resolution on a very small screen in this case makes icons etc very small, in order to fit everything on the screen without being cluttered.

unless you know this could be fixed otherwise, or you dont want to concede your high resolution, try running 1920*1080(which is still an HD resolution, specially on your screen size) and check if your icons have "grown".

maybe someone else can help you out more since other icons do seem to be "normal".

Thanks. Since everything else looks incredible nice, changing the display resolution to a non-native resolution is no way, looks blurry etc.

I hope sombody offers a hint for the other applications...

I've got a similary problem (Lenovo Yoga 2 pro, 13.3", 3200x1800 pixels). I don't mind the icons but I want to try larger windows borders so that I can grab them. F19 + gnome-tweak-tool worked apparently, but not F20 + gnome=tweak-tool, as far as I can tell.
