    Workspace spot mouse going into other workspace

    I can't find where or how to force the mouse to stay in the workspace I'm in. Does anyone know how to do that?

    Thanks, Nicolas

    Mouse going into other workspace

    I was trying to find how to force the mouse to stay in the workspace I'm in. Does anyone know how to do that?

    Does that make any sense?

    Thanks

    Which flavour of Ubuntu are you using? (Unity, kde, Xfce, other)?

    Sorry, I have no idea why it does that. I tried solving the other and it did on both, this one included. I'm using Studio One

    Studio One? I've never heard of that distribution. Do you mean "Ubuntu Studio"? If so, it uses Xfce.

    So to confirm, if you move mouse to the edge of the screen, instead of stopping at the edge, it continues on to the next workspace? Does the display automatically change to the new workspace as well?

    Are you using multiple monitors?

    Does the display automatically change to the new workspace as well? Not sure what you mean here.

    Does the mouse disappear from the screen? How do you know that its moved to the next workspace?

    Are you using Ubuntu Studio (and Xfce)?

    Are you using Ubuntu Studio (and Xfce)? Yes, to both.

    Thanks

    I'm sorry but I'm finding this confusing.

    Are you using the mouse scroll to scroll the window as you read? If so, try going to Settings Manager -> Window Manager Tweaks -> Workspaces tab and uncheck the "Use the mouse wheel on the desktop to switch workspaces". See if thats whats causing it.
