Is it possible to move between desktops with mouse wheel in 11.10?

I could do this in earlier versions using ccsm but that doesn't seem to work in 11.10

Thanks in advance. Bob.

If you are referring to 'scroll on desktop' that still works fine -

ccsm > Viewport Switcher > Desktop-based viewport switching, typically 'Move Next' - button 5, 'Move Prev' - button 4

It works ok with the default Wall & 2X2 workspaces though you might want to slow down a bit in Wall's settings.

It's not uncommon that some ccsm changes won't be realized until you restart compiz or do a log out/in, don't think this is one of them but you never know..

Rotate/cube may work for you, presently is quite broken for many with flashing of previous window when switching workspaces, still an open bug on that.
