Review request for kdelibs.


The KIconButton and the other occurences assume that the icon size for desktop icons is always 48x48. This assumption is wrong.
This patch makes KPropertiesDialog use the proper IconSize.

There are other places that need fixing too (eg. Dolphin's Place edit dialog or KMenuEdit) which I will fix later as well.

So, with KDE Frameworks at the horizon and kdelibs frozen, does this mean, when I am re-writing the KIconDialog to be more userfriendly, use an UI file, introduce new strings, etc this cannot go into master but only frameworks branch?

Yup, you won't notice any difference with default settings but with higher icon size and font scales perfectly and looks good. See screenshot.
