[Solved] Xfce task switching by scrolling in xfce-panel

Are there any way to disable task switching by placing the mouse over the window list and then scrolling the mouse wheel? I've tried these tips at ArchWiki, Disable window roll-up and Disabling scroll in taskbar, but scrolling when the mouse is hovering above the window list still switches between the running programs. This is only a small annoyance, but it is kind of a disturbance on a laptop with a touchpad...

Running xfce4-panel-4.8.3 and xfwm4-4.8.1.

Nope, no way to disable this. But feel free to open a request at bugszilla.xfce.org.

Don't leave your mouse cursor over the tasklist while scrolling? The scrollwheel is treated as a sloppy-focus input regardless of your mouse settings, so even if you were to disable the tasklist switching, you still wouldn't be able to scroll in the focussed pane/window.

Is it possible to have the scroll wheel switch to an open app from the panel? That would be a nice feature..IMO

You're describing what it already does. What happens when you scroll over your tasklist?

If tasklist you mean panel, then nothing happens..

Re: [Solved] Xfce task switching by scrolling in xfce-panel

Which version of Xfce are you using? IIRC, the scrolling tasklist was introduced in 4.6 (with the libwnck rewrite).

4.8.5 in 4.8.0

I have 2 panels and none of the apps work on either when scrolled over

Edit -  I did see where I was on the wrong page in this conversation...

I did add the Window Button to my panel and those tasks do open when scrolled over..

I have 5 Launchers on my panel and it was those that I was referring to that do not switch to when mouse scrolled..

Thanks

Re: [Solved] Xfce task switching by scrolling in xfce-panel

I have asked for it two years ago: *disable mousewheel task switching on taskbar* [  ] and AFAIK even posted a feature request about that. but apparantly no one is/was interested into it. Really annoying feature, because there is still no way to switch it off.

Re: [Solved] Xfce task switching by scrolling in xfce-panel

NIck,

When you say "fixed in master", what does that mean exactly?  I am using Ubuntu 11.10 with XFCE4 4.8.0.2 and I can't find any option to disable raising windows when I scroll on a Window Button.

Does this option exist somewhere?

Hi,

I have the same question, is it possible to change this behavior now?

Thanks

when you say fix'd on master is fixed for the non or for next minor version or for next major version?

And for all thy have 2 options:
a) wait for the fix come to the next build in your distro (like a xfce-panel update official in your distro) or backported
b) compile the git repo by yourself

(I'm right Nix?)

Folks, Nick's post was nearly 1 ½ years ago!

Right-click on 'Window Buttons' > 'Properties' > uncheck 'Switch windows using the mouse wheel'.
