[Bug 1311788] Re: compiz lower window:<Alt>Button5 stops working
** Description changed:
- Since upgrading to 14.04, compiz Lower Window key binding as alt+button5
- is no longer working completely. It used to nicely cycle through windows
- but now if a window surfaces that is scrollable, the 'lower window'
- command stops responding and the window content starts scrolling
- vertically even though the alt key is still pressed. Clicking the window
- and then triggering 'lower window' again causes it to temporarily start
- working again until another scrollable window surfaces.
+ Users who have the horizontal scroll buttons mapped with a modifier such
+ as 'Alt' 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 Alt + button 6 and "Move Prev" to Alt + button 7.
+ [Regression potential]
+ None identified.

This is configured under ccsm General Options->Key Bindings->Lower
It worked previously in 13.10. I have since tried unity-reset and
reverting all compiz settings.
Click To Focus: off
Raise On Click: on
Focus Prevention Level: Low
I tested a different plugin "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" with
the same key binding <Alt>Button5 and it does not demonstrate the same
behavior; I can tune any window opacity whether the window is scrollable
Setting the alternative Lower Window keyboard binding <Control>Down
works without the same interference.
