# Changing mouse behaviour in EOG

When I open a photo in eog I can easily zoom with the mouse mouse wheel. This is kind of nice but since I have a touchpad with two-fingered scrolling and horizontal scrolling I'd rather scroll in the image and zoom by using Ctrl+Mouse Wheel?

I basically want the same behaviour as in evince: Horizontal Scroll and Normal Scroll navigate within the image and Ctrl + Mouse Wheel zooms in and out.

Is this possible somehow?

[EDIT] I just figured out that what I want is already implemented: I can pan the image by using Ctrl + Mouse Wheel. This is fine as it is the behaviour I want only with the Ctrl inverted. But I cannot pan to the left. Up, down and right work fine. What's the problem?

Wauzl, try to set value of the property «scroll-wheel-zoom» to false.

gsettings set org.gnome.eog.view scroll-wheel-zoom false


Also, you can list other EOG properties:

gsettings list-recursively | grep -i eog

Setting org.gnome.eog.view scroll-wheel-zoom to true not only anwered my question but also enables me to pan to the left. Is this a bug in eog or due to my settings? –  Wauzl Feb 18 '13 at 11:17
