    SQL Developer: Splash Screen and Icons

    jlmpuntas

      Hello

       

      I'm using Sql Developer 18.2.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 inside a Dell XPS 15-9560 laptop.

       

      My JVM is Oracle 1.8.0_171.

       

      The splash screen's text is very tiny:

      https://ibb.co/currYd

       

      The icons in the interface are very small:

      https://ibb.co/cPsn6y

       

      I know of the existence of this topic:

      https://community.oracle.com/thread/4138532

       

      However, because the program is in Spanish, I did not see the Show on startup

      checkbox. I saw the text in Spanish ("Mostrar al inicio") but I did not

      see the checkbox.

       

      Then, I changed the program's language to English, to do that, I added the

      following lines to the “sqldeveloper.conf” file:

       

      #GUI language

      AddVMOption -Duser.language=en

       

      (This is explained in this tutorial:

      http://sql.standout-dev.com/2018/04/howto-change-sql-developer-language/

      )

       

      However, that made the Welcome Page dissapear. Yet both problems (the tiny

      splash screen 's text and the very small icons) persist, even after removing

      the lines I added to the “sqldeveloper.conf” file.

       

      Please, what can I do?

       

       

      Regards, José-Luis
