Hello all,

I was just browsing the net and saw the thing I've been thinking to be
done in gnome. Please, see the attachment. Look how compact are the
menus. On the my 1024x768 laptop the current size of the menus and the
wested free space are too much for me. Any clues why this compact
layout has been abondoned or it's some gconf key?

Well, if I were to guess, I'd say the reason is Fitts's Law.

I tried to dig up any bug reports on the matter.  I found bug 82545
and bug 114920.  They seem to all be requesting the opposite of what
you are doing (which happens to match my personal preference; I wish
Mark had decided to go with 32x32 for bug 114920, or at least had made
it scale better with screen resolution).

Hope that helps,
