Disable desktop switching with the scroll wheel in Lubuntu?

June 16Hits:14
Advertisement

I still want to keep my multiple desktops, I want to disable switching desktops with the mouse.

Answers

cd ~/.config/openbox
cp lubuntu-rc.xml lubuntu-rc.xml.bak

(this makes a backup file so that when you think you've messed it up you could revert it back.)

leafpad lubuntu-rc.xml

and delete the lines which says;

<mousebind button="UP" action="click">
 <action name="DesktopPrevious" />
<mousebind button="Down" action="click">
 <action name="DesktopNext" />

Log out and Log in back again to see the changes!

if you've messed it up and want to revert it back;

cp lubuntu-rc.xml.bak lubuntu-rc.xml

Answer quoted from Lubuntu docs

As of Lubuntu 14.04, the config file format and answer is now slightly different from @SWrobel's answer:

  1. Remove the following lines from ~/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml:
    <mousebind button="Up" action="Click">
      <action name="GoToDesktop">
        <to>previous</to>
      </action>
    </mousebind>
    <mousebind button="Down" action="Click">
      <action name="GoToDesktop">
        <to>next</to>
      </action>
    </mousebind>
    
    
  2. Also remove the Ctrl + Scroll and Ctrl + Alt + Scroll bindings below the above section, if you want to.
  3. Execute this to let the settings take effect immediately [source]:
    openbox --reconfigure
