Disable Roll Window up


Description FrancescoA 2010-12-14 07:59:35 CET
I'm not sure if this is the right place. I find the window scroll up very annoying, because by accident, I sometimes perform it with the mouse. Would it be possible to make this an option? ("Disable Roll Window Up"?)
Comment 1 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2010-12-14 08:52:41 CET
I'll add a xfconf key for that, yet I am not in favor of adding yet another UI option (it's already too bloated to my taste).
Comment 2 FrancescoA 2010-12-14 09:16:15 CET
Thank you, that would be really helpful.
Comment 3 FrancescoA 2010-12-14 09:19:11 CET
Is it then adjustable with "Settings Editor"?

Yes or else with "xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/mousewheel_rollup -s false"
Comment 5 Florian Rivoal editbugs 2010-12-14 13:06:51 CET
Just in case there is any doubt about it, please leave the current behavior (roll up is possible) as the default. It is a really good feature of xfwm, and it would be sad to hide it away.
Comment 6 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2010-12-14 13:11:11 CET
yes. that goes without saying of course ^_~
Comment 7 FrancescoA 2010-12-14 18:30:56 CET
It would be also cool, if one can disable the mouse wheel on the taskbar. I
find it also annoying, others like this. Of course per default on. ;)
Comment 8 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2010-12-14 18:32:23 CET
yes, maybe, but unrelated to the window manager.
Comment 9 FrancescoA 2010-12-15 09:39:42 CET
Wrong bug tracker? (for taskbar and mouse wheel)? Can you tell me, where to put this "feature request"?

I put the feature request to xfce4-panel
Comment 12 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2010-12-15 19:10:04 CET
Fixed in git master (for xfwm4)
