Kind of defeats the purpose :-)

and.. doesn't help anyway... as long as compositing is turned on and
desktop effects are turned on, the desktop switches when you activate
the mouse scroll on the desktop... regardless of Cube, Fade etc etc..
or no switching effect. I use it on my desktop, there it's fine..
it's only really a problem on the netbook combined with my fat
fingers.

I looked, swearing blind that it used to be possible - but it's not, in
4.3 at least. From KDE 4.4 it is configurable again, from the Desktop
Settings dialog.

The 4.4 beta cycle isn't that far off. Alternatively you could add the
attached patch to a personal branch of kdelibs4 in the OBS, register the
resulting repo with a lower priority than 11.2, KDE:KDE4:STABLE:Desktop,
KDE:43 or whatever it was branched off and sit tight.

Will, would you mind attaching a similar patch for the task bar to this
bug: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198661 (Add option to disable
scroll on taskbar)

Thanks in advance!


Hey, I didn't even know you could use the scroll wheel on the task bar to
switch apps - that's pretty cool (as long as it only happens when you want it
too ;-)).
