Ubuntu – How to resize the System Settings window


Having installed MyUnity, it also shows up as an entry in the System Settings dialog. However, the System Settings window does not adapt to it. Now I have to scroll down to see the bottom entries, because the System Settings window is not resizable, nor can it be maximized. Is this a bug? There's still plenty of space on my screen. So why scroll down? Is there a way to make this window resizable/maximizable or adapt to the number of entries?

Note: I have disabled overlay scrollbars. But that has nothing to do with it. It also doesn't work with overlay scrollbars enabled.

You can force the resize ability by editing the file /usr/share/gnome-control-center/ui/shell.ui and changing:

 <property name="resizable">False</property>


 <property name="resizable">True</property>
