4.3.beta001 stop scroll wheel switching workspaces

4.3.beta001 stop scroll wheel switching workspaces

enhancement (as this is working as designed, its just designed poorly :-))

Reproduce:

boot 4.3.beta001 and startx with a mouse or trackball with a scroll wheel

with the terminal window as the focus the wheel scrolls the terminal
however moving the focus to the desktop and scrolling causes the terminal
window to disappear (actually you are changing workspaces with the scroll
wheel). This is most annoying (at least to me and I hope to you as well).

Fix:

In /root/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfwm4.xml

change <property name="scroll_workspaces" type="bool" value="true"/>

to

<property name="scroll_workspaces" type="bool" value="false"/>

and scrolling on the desktop does nothing instead of switching workspaces
(a much preferred outcome in my view!).

patch xfwm4.xml.dif
