By default desktop change when I scroll by two-figers on touchpad. I want to disable this func. How i can do it?
Stable or Beta version?
they uses a different desktop configuration system
64-bit beta 3.8.17
scrolling so two finger scroll, switches between the virtual desktops, indeed.
Go into "enlightenment" - "settings" and chose Desks where you can set the number of virtual desktops down to 1 ... and "apply".
Now you can switch desktops by clicking an area in the pager or using the Ctrl, Alt and arrow combo.
Thx, @triantares, but this way is not what I want.
I like 2 desktops with 8 areas in every desktop.
I tuned keybinding and I can switch desktops by alt-` combo, end swtich areas by alt-1,2,3 ... etc
It is very usefull
I often use two-fingers scroll while work. Sometimes, when the mouse pointer place on the free area of desktop, two-fingers scroll switched desktops. It is unfortunately and dislike me.
I want disable or block this function for comfortable using Elive
wouldn't know how to turn off that behaviour other than not having the 2 desktops. Found it ! See below.
Of course you can set a higher number of areas on a single desktop if it's the amount that counts.
Me personally, I prefer a single desktop on the top right like in E17 on Stable so I never run into this scroll thing.
It's something that's prolly hidden deep in some config file somewhere. I'll have a look if I some time.
Which after a quick search turns out to be in
You can edit the file and find the part that says:
MouseDown * 4 desk prev Tooltip Go Back a Desktop MouseDown * 5 desk next Tooltip Go Forward a Desktop
and change the * to i.e S to have to use the scroll with Shift to switch desktops, thus:
MouseDown S 4 desk prev Tooltip Go Back a Desktop MouseDown S 5 desk next Tooltip Go Forward a Desktop
Save the the changes and restart E16.
There is an identical
"/usr/share/e16/config/bindings.cfg" that maybe will regenerate the original bindings on a reboot so I'd alter that one in a similar fashion.
Great idea! It's work! Thx!
