The FS Icons in Ubuntu 15.04 appear huge in the menubars of some applications like Nautilus, Gedit, Calculator, etc. How can the FS icon sizes be corrected to work in Ubuntu 15.04?

Apparently, scalable icons are used in the menubars for Ubuntu 15.04. The FS Icon set specifies a minimum value for the scalable icons as 257 pixels. The solution is to set the minimum value appropriately, so the icons can be scaled down to the required size.

sudo sed -i "s|MinSize=|MinSize=8
#MinSize=|g" /usr/share/icons/fs-icons-ubuntu*/index.theme

In the above command, change /usr/share/icons to the location where you have installed your FS Icon set.

Additionally, in order to fix the icon sizes in Gedit, follow the steps outlined in the following question, since the fix still applies to Ubuntu 15.04.
