Touch is a new GUI to configure more intuitively in Touchegg. That is, for gesture recognition for multi-touch panels in Linux. It is a new app that can make the Linux desktop experience of those who are using it much easier. Touchegg. A program, that if you remember, after not receiving updates for 5 years, has now been completely rewritten to be able to work with the new technologies available on the Linux desktop and the new functions.
This app runs in the background, transforming the gestures of the multi-touch panel that the user performs in actions on the desktop of your distro. You can swipe, pinch, expand, etc. It also allows support for touch screen, with which you can perform a multitude of actions, from minimizing a window by sliding down with 3 fingers, zooming in by pinching with 2 fingers, etc.
In order to edit Touchegg and configure it, users had to edit a configuration file. But that ended with Touché, which is a simple and intuitive GUI so you can do it much easier. That way, you can effortlessly configure global gestures and custom gestures for each app.
Between the supported gestures are:
- Swipe with 3 or 4 fingers for all directions.
- Pinch 2, 3 or 4 fingers in or out.
- Touch with 2, 3, 4, or 5 fingers for touch screens.
