xfwm4-4.11 "ALT+mouse wheel" zoom feature breaks other applications and shoul...


Description mikkl 2014-08-30 12:27:25 CEST
The "ALT + mouse wheel" zoom feature was introduced in recent versions of xfwm-4.11. It is activated by enabling compositing in the window manager tweaks settings menu. It is not obvious that this gets enabled simply by enabling compositing and there should be an option where this feature can be disabled, since it also breaks applications where that input combination is used.

Please someone review the strings in this report. I'm sure there could be better wordings. Tested and worksforme here.

The strings look fine. Good enough! : )
Comment 3 Alistair Buxton 2018-12-04 21:41:03 CET
This patch looks reasonable. I will rebase it if required. I don't have the ability to push it though.
Comment 4 Alistair Buxton 2018-12-08 13:12:25 CET
Note that if you are reading this bug and you need to disable zooming, you can do it with xfconf by editing or creating the general/zoom_desktop parameter in xfwm4 channel, setting it to false. You can do that by running this command:

    xfconf-query --create -t bool -c xfwm4 -p /general/zoom_desktop -s false
