Gnome 46 too much padding on notification


how can I change the padding in notification banners?
Since the gnome46 update the padding got pretty wild on my setup.

Padding is not part of the Desktop Notifications Specification.

Just an idea: you can use CSS. Launch an app with GTK_DEBUG=interactive in front of it and the GTK inspector will also launch. There you can examine the style class and change the class, for example, in ~/.config/gtk-4.0/gtk.css.

If I remember correctly from my own ones, inline CSS also works.

It isn’t the most comfortable workaround. But it works I guess. :slight_smile:
Thank you!
