And I remember reading somewhere on the Launchpad mailing lists that qt needs to be patched for multitouch. You may need to install qt-ubuntu.

@paulinchenk: Okay, first of all, please revert back to the Arch Linux versions of the packages. Sorry about that! The new Xorg now includes the XInput 2.2 needed for touchegg and utouch.

Yes, I installed all the required packages, but still no luck. The segmentation fault error is somehow related to the touchegg.conf file I think, cause sometimes after deleting and recreating the file, I don't got an error. But still touchegg doesn't recognize any gesture and on 5 finger tab I get following error: GRAIL WARNING (v3/gesture.cpp:IsOwned:253): failed to get touch from frame.

@paulincheck: Hmmm...I'll look into the segmentation fault error. For touchegg to work, Ubuntu's Xorg and uTouch needs to be installed, which is the following packages:


It's a lot of packages, but unfortunately all of them are needed :(. Please make sure all of them are installed.

Thank you very much for your work, at least I was able to install touchegg. But if I try to start it I get an segmentation fault error.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Is it necessary to install the xf86-input-synaptics-ubuntu as well? Cause without it I am not able to move the cursor at all.

@paulinchenk: It should be ready now :)

@paulinchenk: I'm currently in the process of updating the Ubuntu xorg package :-) I'll let you know when it's ready.

Thanks in advance

There is no GUI for version 1.0 yet.
