[SOLVED] Disabling touchpad gestures

If I scroll down on touchpad with 2 fingers when my cursor's on the desktop, BL will switch between the virtual desktops. As I'm perfectly happy with Ctrl/Alt/Arrow and W-Fx kbd shortcuts, I'd like to disable this feature permanently. I've not been able to find a solution, so who could point me to the right direction?

Re: [SOLVED] Disabling touchpad gestures

It is an Openbox setting. In bl-rc.xml look for

    <context name="Desktop">

and comment out the following section

      <!--
      <mousebind button="Up" action="Click">
        <action name="GoToDesktop">
          <to>previous</to>
        </action>
      </mousebind>
      <mousebind button="Down" action="Click">
        <action name="GoToDesktop">
          <to>next</to>
        </action>
      </mousebind>
    -->

Then Menu > Preferences > Openbox > Reconfigure

Thanks Dano. That didn't do it alone, even after reboot, so I went and commented out all mousebind actions with "GoToDesktop". That worked smile
