On Xubuntu 16.04.3 LTS the labels attached to the icons on my desktop could span more than one line.
Now I have installed Xubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. This version (with its default settings) truncates all labels on my desktop where a line break would become necessary.
That's quite unsatisfactory since I sometimes have similar items which distinguish themselves not in the first say 12 characters but rather in some later ones which would appear on the second or third line of the label if linebreaking would happen instead of truncation.
I have to admit that the line breaking on Xubuntu 16.04 sometimes happened in odd places, e.g. in the middle of a word, sometimes even giving rise to strange interpretations of the words… At least it was better than what I have now.
Can I tell Xubuntu not to just truncate the label but rather to provide space for say up to three lines?
It would be even nicer if Xubuntu could display labels to the icons with reasonable hyphenation… just as a matter of aesthetics.
