Pantheon-Mail stretches horizontally across screen eOS

I read about this error before but never faced it, until today.

I ran a sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade to make my lap up to date. and ended up with to problems. Hopefully I can Fix them. 1. Pantheon-Mail now stretches horizontally across the screen. 2. when I click “network settings” from drop-down menu of network icon on wing panel, it opens “system settings”.

after a brief googling I found solution for the first one.

kill or close pantheon-mail then run the following command on terminal.

dconf reset -f /org/pantheon/mail/

Which will reset the settings of Mail to default. For me after running this it was solved.

(some user said this is not a permanent solution and i may have to run the same when it appears again! )

how to change the icon theme in dock and applications menu without changing the indicator icons and Pantheon icons?



Switch icons back to default.

In usr/share/icons/numix-circle. Open up your index.theme file with text editor

A few lines down there will be a line saying


Change it to say


In the tweaks panel, select Numix Circle

now numix theme will apply to both plank and sligshot menu only. indicator and pantheon icons will stay as default.
