[Bug 1311303] Re: Compiz mouse functions mapped to horizontal scrolling buttons do not work


** Description changed:

+ [Impact]
+ Users who have the horizontal scroll button mapped to other functions
+ using CCSM no longer have working mapped functions.  This breaks the
+ user's workflow.
+ [Test case]
+ * Need a mouse with horizontal scrolling, ie, click the mouse wheel left and right.
+ * Open CCSM.
+ * Map a function to the horizontal scroll buttons, ie, buttons 6 & 7.  For example:
+   * Enable workspaces.
+   * CCSM->Viewport Switcher->Desktop-based Viewport Switching
+   * Set "Move Next" to button 6 and "Move Prev" to button 7.
+ [Regression potential]
+ When a user has a function mapped to the horizontal scroll buttons,
+ horizontal scrolling in windows that support horizontal scrolling will
+ no longer work.  The user must recognize that when they map the
+ function, they loose the original functionality.  This is the same case
+ in previous versions of Ubuntu before this regression occurred, so no
+ real regression potential.
+ Original Description:
  Running Ubuntu 14.04 and compiz 0.9.11.
  Upon upgrading to 14.04 I can no longer use mouse buttons to switch
  between desktops in the Desktop Wall when a maximised window is
  focussed. It works as expected when using keyboard functions, or when
  the desktop is focussed.
