Now I need to see if other elements are configured there too. I think the Brush palette and such are still the same size.

LOL, I tried to make it slow, but the more delay, the bigger the file size of the gif so I have to balance it. You should have seen what it looked like before(lightning fast) I added custom delays (notice only some frames are quick)

& Yes it appears all the graphic interfaces of gimp(or most) is controlled here, its just a matter of what values you can use.

Glad it worked out for you! ^_^ maybe post a pic of your new gimp when you get the chance.

Here's my screenshot. GIMP was running full screen on my 15.6" laptop display. The toolbar buttons are perfect now but, as you can see, the brush palette (is that what it's called? bottom right dock) is still too tiny. Any ideas what settings govern that part?

Many thanks for your help so far. A huge step closer to getting a usable GIMP setup! Big Grin

Cool 8) , yes I think there's a line for brush palettes tools too, there's also ones for the tabs at the top-right if you want to experiment with that.

Try changing the line:
Code:
GimpToolPalette:tool-icon-size  =button

If you haven't changed that one already.

For the tabs at the top right tabs, maybe:
Code:
GimpColorNotebook: tab-icon-size =button

Yup, that's how I enlarged the tool buttons Big Grin

That scaled up the tab buttons nicely! I've tried all sorts but simply cannot increase the size of the brush palettes. So close...

Gimp Windows themes are a pita, I think the icons are in icon packs (dll files). Gimp linux is a bit more obvious.

So taking the theme with the most icons, I can batch resize the icons x2 (with resultant fuzziness).

The font size can be increased in the gtkrc file. Look for the line font_name = "sans 16" but be careful, some values eg '12' and I found the icons reverted to default.

For a comparison, using a Win7 32 bit virtual machine with a screen resolution of 1280x960 and Gimp 2.8.6

This is what to look for

Changing the theme, and restarting Gimp for the font to take effect

Some things I think might be hard encoded, don't know, the dialog icons and the brush/patterns/ tabs or missing from the theme. Looks like the cage-tool icon is missing.

This is offered not as a solution more as a starting point. Oxygen theme is attached, do not forget to unzip it.
Read a lot...stopped after finding this . It worked for Me (and My sore eyes). SOLVED!
