OESF Portables Forum _ Off Topic forum _ Mouse Gesture Support In Linux (ubuntu)

Posted by: Snappy Jun 3 2008, 09:18 PM

Having used the c1000 z for almost two years and finally switching my main machine (notebook) to Ubuntu, I'm well converted to using Linux on a daily basis.
The one thing I miss, actually two things are:

1. Support for left and right mouse wheel tilt-button
2. Support for mouse gestures

I recently got #1 working by installing btnx. So now I'm onto #2. Currently FF3 supports it, but increasingly I'm finding Opera providing a much better web experience.

Opera supports gesture, but is shy to display the strokes ... so I'm like gesturing blind! grrrr

Is there some mouse gesture app for linux, mainly Ubuntu, that I can run?

I'm gonna switch to Ubuntu for my eeepc, and with zubuntu coming up nicely, I might just switch my Z to ubuntu as well. smile.gif

Pointers and advices appreciated. Thanks in advance. smile.gif
