I followed this tutorial to show the tray icons again and it worked properly.


However, there's a huge gap between the icons. How can I adjust it?

enter image description here


You must edit /usr/share/themes/elementary/gtk-3.0/apps.css, find this selector

.composited-indicator {
    padding: 0 6px; 

and change to

.composited-indicator {
    padding: 0 2px;

If you use another theme then change the path to /usr/share/themes/MyTheme/gtk-3.0/apps.css You'll have to repeat it after every elementary theme update unless devs decide to change it.
