It doesn't work with the 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.

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.

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 - - probably upstream never updated their release, I can't seem to find any tarballs after 1.1.1. Just a headsup for other users.

I can't get this to work, it launches without errors but non of the gestures work. I'm using cinnnamon 2.2.16-1

@eBait: Fixed again :) I wish the devs would make up their mind when qt4 was still in [testing] :)
