Vertical panels are special: While horizontal panels are generally
almost always only used in configurations ranging from one to three
text lines in height, vertical panels are used in a wider range
from very narrow to very wide, depending on whether users want to
fit only icons or also text (which needs ample horizontal space to
In a wide vertical panel, it's inappropriate for launcher icons to
grow beyond a certan size, as they otherwise occupy too much
vertical space. For that reason https://phabricator.kde.org/D4550 introduced an icon size setting
in the Task Manager applet, shown only when the applet is embedded
into a vertical panel.
This patch brings the same setting to Kicker and App Dash, with the
same smallMedium default. A narrow vertical panel which doesn't fit
text labels or uses Icons-only Task Manager will therefore get same-
sized icons in those launchers and in the TM. A wider vertical panel
won't see the launcher icon grow beyond the TM's icon size if both
are left as default, with settings allowing users to manage the two
A similar change will need to be done for Kickoff, which uses the
default CompactRepr instead.
