There are times that I simply cannot grok the minds of developers and
this is one of them... I have a laptop, with a touchpad that handles
scrolling by touching it along the side of the touchpad area. With
multiple desktops, this was resulting in an extremely annoying behavior
(to me) in that I would inadvertently touch the side while manipulating
the mouse cursor, and the freaking desktop would switch on me.
So, I decided to track down where this behavior was set and the first
LOGICAL place to look for it was in the KDE Desktop Settings > Multiple
Desktops > Switching Seems like a REAL APPROPRIATE place for such a
setting to be found, but no joy there! Nothing, nada about mouse scroll
behavior... Not believing that this was a built in "feature" I hunted
and hunted around and FINALLY discovered that by right clicking on the
background to bring up the context sensitivity menu, selecting Desktop
Activity Settings, one finds Mouse Actions here! Why here??? And there I
found the miscreant setting for mouse scrolling set to switch desktops!
Why make this so difficult? Either have this setting ability located in
both places so it can be more easily found, OR just locate it in the KDE
Desktop Settings along with the rest of the options for controlling
desktop switching. What is the rational for having two different
locations/mechanisms for switching desktops?
