Description Vladimir Benes 2009-09-24 12:12:27 UTC
Description of problem:
go to workspace switcher preferences dialog and try to disallow wheel movement while it is allowed in Window Manager tweaks and vice versa .. It doesn't work!

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.allow in window manager tweaks wheel workspace switching
2.go into workspace panel applet preferences and uncheck it 
3.try to swicth workspaces via wheel 
  
Actual results:
cant allow switching using applet

Expected results:
be able to chnge behaviour using applet and also change windows manager tweaks option with applet settings

Additional info:
it doesn't corespond to each other .. one setting can have "allow" and the second "deny" and viceversa.. workspace switcher option is absolutely useless as it does nothing!

Works fine here.

Please be so kind as to fill out version and release. I'm not sure this bug is going to be closed any time soon and you don't expect us to know which release was, do you?

This is something different. This is switching with the wheel while you are pointing at the empty desktop but not at the workspace switcher. Turning this behavior on and off works fine here too.

And this is just what I'm expecting. I disable the setting and scrolling on the applet no longer has an effect.

Sorry, I don't get what you are trying to tell us in the last two paragraphs.

ok that's right .. but it is not so clear that those options do something else...

window manager tweaks connects to switching over desktop
switcher workspace applet connects to switching over applet only
  
closing as NOTABUG
