Description Daniel Veillette 2008-03-26 06:15:48 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.2)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

In KDE3 it was possible to use the mousewheel on the desktop to cycle through virtual desktops -- it appears that this is not yet implemented in KDE4 (or may have been removed on purpose?).  You can scroll over the pager, but that's a much smaller target.  It'd be nice to be able to go into the "Configure Desktops" dialogue and enable this capability.

Agreed. Please implement this feature. It was -very- useful in KDE3.

SVN commit 842821 by aseigo:

wheel scroll == desktop switch; no configuration, let's see how people react.

moment of philosophy: there are some features used almost exclusively by people who can't (or can't be bothered to) write code, but know where our bug tracker is, my blog is, what my email address is, etc... this is one such feature. amazing. or sad. i'm not sure which.

I'd like to have this configurable. When I'm using a mouse with a scroll wheel I really like this feature, but when I'm using a touchpad with two-finger scrolling I would like to have it turned off.
