Wrapping behaviour not as expected.


Description Ben Ford 2006-02-27 03:42:36 CET
I have my workspaces set up in a 2x2 square.  For this discussion, I'll call them:
  1 2
  3 4

If I start in workspace 1 and move my mouse to the right, it will wrap to
workspace 2.  This is expected.  However, if I keep moving right, it will wrap
back to workspace 1.  To me, that breaks the spatial abstraction.  I think that
wrap should only move in these ways:
  1 <--> 2
  ^      ^
  v      v
  3 <--> 4

But that's an option, described in the documentation:



    wrap workspaces depending on the actual desktop layout. 

    wrap workspaces when the first or last workspace is reached. 
Comment 2 Ben Ford 2006-03-02 19:31:14 CET
ick.  Why are they hidden?

Please don't be following Gnome's path to suckiness.
Comment 3 Ben Ford 2006-03-02 20:16:07 CET
And regardless, "wrap_cycle=false" doesn't seem to work anyways. :(

Btw, I didn't mean to sound like an ass.  Thanks for telling me about the hidden
options, I've been using XFCE for years and never knew about them.
Comment 4 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-03-02 21:14:32 CET
What does the following command give ?

grep -i wrap ~/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/xfwm4.xml
Comment 5 Ben Ford 2006-03-02 21:16:41 CET
$ grep -i wrap ~/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/xfwm4.xml
        <option name="Xfwm/WrapResistance" type="int" value="8"/>
        <option name="Xfwm/WrapWindows" type="int" value="1"/>
        <option name="Xfwm/WrapWorkspaces" type="int" value="1"/>
Comment 6 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-03-02 22:00:54 CET
The option to set is wrap_layout=false (wrap workspaces depending on the actual
desktop layout.)
Comment 7 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-03-03 17:50:59 CET
I see no bug here, as long as the right option is used (though the number of
different options related to desktop cycling is definitely confusing).

Bug #1513
