Description Chris Lee 2003-06-07 22:41:16 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
Compiler:          gcc 3.3 
OS:          Linux

If you turn on mousewheel desktop switching (as Bug 40982 requested, and Stephan Binner implemented) via WheelSwitchesWorkspaces=true in $KDEHOME/share/config/kdesktoprc, desktop switching works by scrolling the mousewheel.

But if you disable desktop icons, the desktop switching breaks.

Mousewheel desktop switching shouldn't depend on desktop icons being visible/enabled.

Works in HEAD. 
Comment 2 Chris Lee 2003-09-19 23:26:24 UTC
No, it does not work. Clean rebuild of kdelibs and kdebase here, disable desktop 
icons, enable mousewheel switching, and it does not switch desktops when I hit the 
Desktop switching in general doesn't break - I should have worded the bug report 
better in the first place - but switching-by-mousewheel does not work if you disable 
the icons.

Yep, it doesn't work here with 20030916, maybe it does with the the newer ones? If not, 
I hope this will get fixed soon...
