View Full Version : [ubuntu] Switching Workspaces - Mouse Wheel

October 31st, 2009, 06:55 PM
Recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I love it so far. My only problem with it so far is that the function of the mouse wheel from previous versions, the one where it allows you to switch left and right between workspaces if the mouse is focused on the desktop, has been missing on 9.10.

I don't think my mouse is the problem, since the mouse wheel works with scrolling up and down on web pages. It's also never been a problem in past versions.

Any help would be nice.

Thanks a lot, sir. It worked! I can go back to enjoying Ubuntu as I did before.

Thanks again.
