I would like to switch between windows using the scroll wheel of the mouse over each app icon in Ubuntu dock, as we could do in Unity, but apparently this doesn't work in Ubuntu 17.10.

Is there a way to enable it?

Open Terminal and run

gsettings set org.gnome.shell.extensions.dash-to-dock scroll-action 'cycle-windows'

    Yes, it still works after reboot. – user246185 Oct 21 '17 at 21:12
  • Why there is no GUI support! not even by tweaks tool. – Amir Karimi Jan 28 '18 at 22:55
  • UPDATE: Installed the origin gnome dash-to-dock extension, now I can edit the settings. Are they (gnome dash-to-dock and ubuntu dock) just sharing the settings or they're basically the same! – Amir Karimi Jan 28 '18 at 23:02
  • @AmirKarimi Ubuntu Dock is a fork of dash-to-dock extension. – pomsky Jan 29 '18 at 6:55
