How to Turn Off Changing Desktops When Scrolling Touchpad in Lubuntu12.04 ?

Using 12.04 with laptop. Moving the finger along the right edge of the
touchpad acts as a scroll wheel. If the cursor is not in any app window
but is in open desktop area then this scrolling action will transport
one to a different desktop.

I want to turn off all desktop changing with the touchpad. I only want
the right click at the top of the window border which gives me the
option to take that window to a different desktop - I want no other
desktop changing action enabled with the mouse/touchpad.

I used to go into /home/userone/.config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml and make
changes. But this file and the syntax in there has changed slightly
since 10.x and now I'm not sure how to do it.

How to do? Thanks!
