#234 Menu icon size patch

bugfix (78)

The configuration variable MenuIconSize is only defined in src/themable.h but not used in the code. Therefore, setting it to a value does not do anyting. Icewm uses smallIconSize for the menu icon size.

This patch adds proper behavior by using MenuIconSize for the size of the menu icons. I've tested this at two systems and it works correctly as far as I can tell.

    Sadly the menu icons are not rendered correctly using this patch. They look blurry, even if the original size of the icons is selected.

    Yes, you're absolutely right. I've created a new patch with proper image scaling.

    Dear Wilco:
    This patch make the menu icon size setting works well, but it also enlarge the height of window menu(Alt+Space).
    Would you make a new patch that can enable the menu icon size setting and keep normal height of window menu at the same time?
    Thank you so much.
    Best Regards,

    Hello Miner,

    This patch does not alter the height or properties of the taskbar. But I'm not quite sure what you mean with "window menu".

    Can you provide a screenshot with description of your problem?

    Thanks for the screenshot, however to fix this in a generic way would require some serious rewriting of the menu code. So this is something the Icewm author has to fix.
