Bug Description

Using Ubuntu 11.10:
In the 'Desktop Wall' compiz plugin, tab 'Bindings', section 'Move within wall' are the options: Move Next en Move previous.

Adding keys/buttons to: next_button, next_key, prev_button and prev_key do nothing.
Some people report only horizontal movements.

(The up/down/left/right movements work fine. Plugin 'Viewport switcher' has also correct working previous/next movements)

In the 'Desktop Wall' compiz plugin, tab 'Bindings', section 'Move within wall' are the options: Move Next en Move previous.

Adding keys/buttons to: next_button, next_key, prev_button and prev_key do nothing.
(Some people report only horizontal movements, but even that isn't happening)

(The up/down/left/right movements work fine. Plugin 'Viewport switcher' has also correct working previous/next movements)

It's only when the current viewport is a leftmost or a rightmost viewport, the shortcuts for 'Move Prev' and 'Move Next' don't do anything.
