Sure thing, just wanted to comment for people with the same issue. All other touchpad events worked just fine (right click with two fingers, middle click with three..), except the three-finger swipes. So one might think it might be related to this package.

@stepovic, it is more appropriate to raise a bug on github than here. However, it is a bug in libinput 1.11.1, not libinput-gestures (type libinput list-devices and it core dumps) so I guess they will fix that quickly.

Edit: I raised a bug on libinput:

The update of libinput (from 1.11.0-1 to 1.11.1-1) broke libinput-gestures. Output of "libinput-gestures-setup restart":

Command '['libinput', 'list-devices']' died with <signals.sigsegv: 11=""></signals.sigsegv:>

Output of "libinput list-devices":

[1] 12303 segmentation fault (core dumped) libinput list-devices

Downgrading to libinput 1.11.0-1 fixed it.

@nfs you should use touchegg instead to setup gestures on touchscreen

@ouyangjun, I added the missing hicolor-icon-theme but the other packages are actually needed.

This AUR application only processes what libinput calls "gestures", i.e. 2 to 5 finger pinches, and 3 to 5 finger swipes. You are not clear on what you call "scrolling" but I gather you want stock 2 finger scrolling. That is not a libinput gesture and should work by default. If it doesn't then you should consult the documentation/forums/etc about your touchpad and/or libinput but it is not related to this AUR package.

I tried this in the hope that it would help me to enable scrolling on my Elan touchscreen. What I got instead was the ability to use 3 finger scrolling on my Synaptics Touchpad which would change my desktops.

It seems like I was barking up the wrong tree, but if anyone can shed some light on the issue, it would be, well, illuminating.
