[Bug 1312408] Re: Extra mouse buttons in compiz do not work


Hi galen,

Thank you for the bug report.  I made some changes in Compiz to try to
fix an issue with scrolling non-focused Gtk apps due to a change in Gtk
in the 13.10 cycle.   There have been a few corner case regressions due
to my fix.

I take you aren't adding a modifier to the left and right click of the
wheel such as Alt?  It's just straight up button 6 and 7, right?  As I
take it, those are reserved for horizontal scrolling without using a
modifier.  I'm working on a another fix for allowing modifiers with the
scroll wheels as I was a little too overzealous with handling the scroll
wheel (see bug #1311788).

I'd like to ask you what your expectation would be if a window is
horizontally scrollable and you push the wheel left or right over that
window when you have exposed mapped as well?

I'll think about this some more, but I'd like to hear your feedback.
