expose the WheelMouseZooms global setting through the input ("mouse") KCM
Review Request #125043 - Created Sept. 4, 2015 and updated
|René J.V. Bertin|

KDE4 has been providing a setting that (would have) allowed to avoid unwanted text zooming during simulated inertial scrolling (scroll coasting). KDE PIM applications were immune to that issue because certain KDELibs classes use the parameter, which made it all the more annoying that other (e.g. Kate-based) applications weren't. Sadly this setting wasn't published via a GUI.
This patch adds a checkbox to the input ("mouse") KCM which seemed like the most appropriate place if not only because it also makes sense to provide this KCM on non-X11 platforms like OS X and MS Windows (where settings like "double or single click" are relevant).
I consider this a fix of an omission bug, but I realise that it could also be considered a new feature, so this RR is also intended to give some public exposure to my patch rather than keeping it to myself.
For now only on OS X with kdelibs 4.14.11 .

Since this will have no impact on QTextBrowser (Qt4 or 5) and maybe some other views in either direction, this limited impact needs to be somehow lined out (since to a user there's hardly a difference between QTextBrowser and KTextBrowser)
read this line closely, then fix it ;-P
You are aware that this is a dead repo and that this is a new feature for a repository that has been feature frozen for years?
Given that I think this should not and never be merged. If you want to keep the repo going for OSX I suggest to create a branch for your patches.
