EoG: Next - previous images with mouse wheel middle button


Regarding this question, are there any news ?

It would be very great to get ability to change photo viewing in Eye of Gnome by using also mouse wheel middle button as in many softs (move to the bottom : next photo of the directory, move to the top : previous photo).

For now, mouse wheel middle button does a zoom on photo, perhaps it could be added an option in Preferences to choose what behavior we want (or change photo with left / right button). I know that aim of EoG is to be as "easy to use" as possible, but this particular way of moving between photos is very common.

This is the only feature I miss in EoG: it is a light program, and used in couple with a photo-editor like F-Spot or phraymd which manages tags, collections and galleries, and as it's already included in Gnome / Ubuntu, EoG is the perfect complement for scrolling / viewing images.

Thanks in advance. Best regards,

Actually there seems to be already code for this in eog. Using Buttons 6
and 7. The next and prev buttons on my mouse are mapped to 8 and 9
though. The question now would be if this is generally the case now?

If yes we could simply adjust the button numbers and everything would
work again (theoretically). If not we'd have to find another solution
(like supporting both mappings).
