Scrolling no longer works on desktop
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Update to plasma 5.18.4? (at least that when the problem started happening)
2. Click on desktop
3. Use scroll wheel
Should switch between virtual desktops or do whatever "right click > configure desktop > mouse actions > vertical scroll" is set to do.
Change virtual desktop with any other mouse button works.
Scrolling in other applications still works.
Scrolling with mouse over virtual desktop icon on taskbar works.
"qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin nextDesktop" command works as expected. (Should I be posting this report under kwin?)
~/.config/plasma-org.kde.plasma.desktop-appletsrc has been reset to no effect.
Bug 413104 seems similar but no solution has been provided in that thread.
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.68.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2

I created a temporary workaround with xbindkeys and xdotool.
In ~/.xbindkeysrc I added the lines:
The contents of the shell files are:
eval $(xdotool getmouselocation --shell)
name=$(xdotool getwindowname $WINDOW)
base="Desktop — Plasma"
if [ "$name" = "$base" ]; then
qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin nextDesktop
With "nextDesktop" in the scroll_down/sh file and "previousDesktop" in the scroll_up.sh file.
The "qdbus" command could also be replaces with "xdotool set_desktop"
This assumes that you have two desktops stacked vertically.
Also there is no wrap around scrolling.
forgot to remove unnecessary "echo $WINDOW" and "echo succ"
