Hello List,


I find it baffling that the Office suite of choice for all Unixes,OOo
should not implement scrolling horizontally using the mousewheel when the
mouse is on the scroll bar in Linux.Ditto with Firefox.

All GUIs in Linux, both under KDE and Gnome,implement this.I use Opera to browse, which is not a great darling of Linux users,that implements this.
But the great darlings-OOo,Firefox-do not really care to implement this
nice unique feature of Linux Desktop. Also, look at their implementation
printer interfaces which is inferior to any native application of both KDE
& Gnome.

It appears from the experience of using these applications on Windows and
Linux that both these darlings do not care enough for linux though Linux
showers them with so much love and attention.

These are my feelings.I am trying to share and see what the community has
to say.

I don't know about what the community might say, but I would say that I
find it baffling that someone would rather choose a public forum to
announce their desires rather than go into redhat's bugzilla or Oo's bug
reporting tool and make an entry.

Well,Craig, I agree it is only proper to report one's wishes and observations in the right place.(bugzilla). All users owe that much to the open developer community.

But in my case I was not fully sure it was a bug or inadequacy, though I have felt this for quite a while. I wondered if it's not my own ignorance.

Your answer and tone give me enough confidence to go and report. Thank You.

It's not a bug if it's not in bugzilla...it's only someone pissing in
the wind.
