Posted by

in terminal in your home directory issue the below command

sudo gedit ~/.gtkrc-2.0

and copy the below content and save

style "gtkcompact" { 
  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=2 
  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=1 
} 
class "GtkWidget" style "gtkcompact"

style "gtkcompactextra" { 
  xthickness=2 ythickness=2 
} 
class "GtkButton" style "gtkcompactextra"
class "GtkToolbar" style "gtkcompactextra"
class "GtkPaned" style "gtkcompactextra"

if you increase xthickness and ythickness it will make menus bigger so value 2 is fine
