Yes, actual icon size now changes, but space around icon is still about double.

Comment 6 Aurelien Oudelet 2020-10-29 11:23:44 CET
Upstream bug closed.

Today, with Plasma 5.20.1 under Cauldron, I don't feel that icons are using twice space.
Also, Plasma Desktop is made that it is touch-friendly. Icons on Desktop should be reached by user-finger. Moreover, icon size can be set by using right-click menu.

Closing this.
