Package has been updated to use Github source, and to also build and install the bundled touchegg-gui.

No Longer hosted on googlecode, touchegg has moved to github.

It doesn't work with the 1.8.99.1-1 version of xf86-input-synaptics.
Tried with a previous version ([1]) successfully.

This fails to build with missing XTest.h. You need to add a dependency to libxtst.

None of the gestures are working for me and I'm on Gnome 3.18.2. I tried adding "touchegg &" to my ~/.xprofile but that didn't solve the problem.

Please consider applying patch from https://code.google.com/p/touchegg/issues/detail?id=222 in order to fix the pinch-in gesture.

I'm currently using touchegg with a Touch Screen on an Asus x200CA. I can't seem to get the pinch or rotate features to work.

Someguy and Tamashii, what kind of touch device are you using. I've worked with touchegg using a synaptics clickpad before and have had difficulty with the touch events getting through to touchegg due to the synaptics driver "grabbing them first". You might try https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xf86-input-mtrack-git/.

Same problem as Tamashii. Starts without flaws but does nothing :/ Do I have to configure something else to get it actually running?

I had to install the -svn version because 1.1.1 doesn't include this fix - https://code.google.com/p/touchegg/issues/detail?id=177 - probably upstream never updated their release, I can't seem to find any tarballs after 1.1.1. Just a headsup for other users.
