Description of problem:
I can not mouse through workspaces as I could with redhat 7.3... 8.0/gnome blew
away my old desktop settings. I like the new desktop, but need to be able to
mouse through workspaces and not have to click on the workspace switcher...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login to redhat 8 with gnome
2. goto preferences of the window switcher, no options for window flipping
3. sawfish controls do nothing when clicked on
Actual Results: can not use window flipping, can not mouse through workspaces
Expected Results: should have the ability to mouse through workspaces
Some metacity-related discussion can be found at
If you're using Sawfish I think edge-flipping is still there, but I'm not sure.
Note that on 8.0 upgrade you'll have metacity by default and will need to switch
over if you want the extended feature set offered by Sawfish.
In any case, we won't implement the edge flipping feature on the Red Hat level,
we will just have it if the upstream window manager projects have it.
