Thread: Multi Touch Gestures

    Question Multi Touch Gestures

    Hi,
    I was wondering - is there any multi touch gesture support in openSuse 11.4? I have enabled multi touch scrolling under the 'Mouse' module in Yast, and it works fine.
    However, i was wondering if a multi touch gesture set is available - such as pinch zoom, or even custom gestures mapped to keyboard combos - e.g. using a spiral to launch terminal?

    System - Acer Aspire One D255 (n550 version)
    Mouse Pad - SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad

    Both KDE and Gnome have programs to manage a touchpad; enter 'synap' as the search term and you should discover both of them either already installed or in YaST>Software Management.

    I have installed the relevant software, I had already. All I was wondering is whether there had been another suite of software designed for mapping other gestures to actions - notably the gsynaptics and the pre-installed mouse module only allow for 'two finger scrolling' when under windows there was extensive gesture recognition. - Although I never even booted the windows installation to test
    Thanks

    Perhaps you have a reason to put in a feature request to KDE/Gnome.

    I have a thinkpad tablet. In certain applications pinch zooming works, but
    not in all.

    I don't recall doing anything special to activate this, other than
    installing the "TabletPC" Pattern in YaST.

    I can't really say about any other multitouch fatures as I haven't tried or
    don't know about them.

    HTH.
