Blurred icons in alt-tab switcher


Description carlosjosepita 2018-07-05 01:41:40 CEST
I find the mini-window preview useless and the window icon too small, so I disabled the preview and incremented the icon size by adding

* {
    -XfwmTabwinWidget-icon-size: 96;

to my gtk.css. So far so good, but the problem is that some icons looks awfully blurred (for example the one for emacs). Now, this doesn't happen under gnome nor under cinnamon nor under mate, but one desktop I know suffers of the same problem is plasma. I think it's because they pick the icon embedded as a resource in the window itself and scale it, instead of using the high resolution big icons provided by the application package. They adamantly argued this was the right thing to do... it could be but it's certainly not the right thing to look at, the blurred icons looks like s**t if you pardon my french.

Could you use the high res icons instead?
