openSuSE 11.4 comes with a really “nice” feature. In order to
go from one virtual console to another you can use your mouse wheel
or go with the cursor to left, right side or the top, bottom edge. This
is annoying. How can I cancel this “feature”?
Assuming that you use KDE, right click on the desktop (not in any window), and select “Desktop Settings”. Then choose the menu item for “Mouse Actions”. Redefine the mouse action for “Vertical Scroll”. The default, as I recall, was “switch desktop”. Among the choices, I selected “switch window” which doesn’t actually seem to do anything for me, perhaps related to using “Focus under mouse” in window behavior settings.
