Ubuntu – How to use mouse scroll to hide windows

gnomemousemouse scrollwindow-manager

I used to set the mouse scroll to hide the windows when scrolling on the title bar: alas, I can't remember how I did that…

Can you please tell me how to achieve it?

You're in luck! Just the other day I was trying to do this and found out how.

  1. Press Alt+F2 to bring up the "Run Application" Dialog
  2. Type in gconf-editor and then press Enter
  3. Go to apps -> gwd
  4. Double click on the mouse_wheel_action row
  5. Type in shade as the value. Press okay and voila!
