Unhappy Changing desktops in Fluxbox using the wheelmouse


I have 2 PCs, both running what I think are very similar configurations.

Debian unstable on both
Both have Micr$onot optical wheelmice
Both running Fluxbox

On the one, I can change desktops by rolling the wheelmouse on the desktop background. On the other I can only do this by rolling the wheelmouse on the desktop panel of the toolbar. I prefer the former setup.

I cannot find the difference between the settings on the 2 machines!

Anyone care to put me out of my misery?

Thanks
Steve

Smile Solved

Solved: Simon Bowden on fluxbox-users helped:

>$ cat ~/.fluxbox/init | grep -i wheel
>session.screen1.desktopwheeling: true
>session.screen0.desktopwheeling: true
>
>I'd suggest checking that the screen1 one is set to true.

Smile Changing desktops in Fluxbox using the wheelmouse + alt

Hello;

First disabling in .fluxbox/init the desktop wheel change

Now in order to do so we need to work into the .fluxbox/keys
