How to get more display space with Fedora 18, I am using Eclipse and that the current default fedora theme (whatever it is called) it eating up a lot of space, is there a system theme that eats less space?

I use a script to start Eclipse which sets this environment variable GTK2_RC_FILES to a file I customize specifically for working in Eclipse.

export GTK2RCFILES=/opt/eclipses/gtkrc-sar

And the file content is:

style "gtkcompact" { fontname="Liberation 10" GtkButton::defaultborder={0,0,0,0} GtkButton::defaultoutsideborder={0,0,0,0} GtkButtonBox::childminwidth=0 GtkButtonBox::childminheigth=0 GtkButtonBox::childinternalpadx=0 GtkButtonBox::childinternalpady=0 GtkMenu::vertical-padding=1 GtkMenuBar::internalpadding=0 GtkMenuItem::horizontalpadding=4 GtkToolbar::internal-padding=0 GtkToolbar::space-size=0 GtkOptionMenu::indicatorsize=0 GtkOptionMenu::indicatorspacing=0 GtkPaned::handlesize=4 GtkRange::troughborder=0 GtkRange::stepperspacing=0 GtkScale::valuespacing=0 GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbarspacing=0 GtkExpander::expandersize=10 GtkExpander::expanderspacing=0 GtkTreeView::vertical-separator=0 GtkTreeView::horizontal-separator=0 GtkTreeView::expander-size=8 GtkTreeView::fixed-height-mode=TRUE GtkWidget::focuspadding=0 } class "GtkWidget" style "gtkcompact"

style "gtkcompactextra" { xthickness=0 ythickness=0 } class "GtkButton" style "gtkcompactextra" class "GtkToolbar" style "gtkcompactextra" class "GtkPaned" style "gtkcompactextra"

This style I'm using is very minimalist, maybe too much as some toolbars don't look as nice anymore, but of course you are welcome to play with each parameter.

Take a look at You can also install zukitwo theme, which is in Fedora repositories (yum search zukitwo).

Good luck!
