https://bbs.archlinux.org – To whom it may concern: A few days ago I switched from using osx to arch on my beloved macbook pro 8,1.I absolutely love arch, but I really missed all those fancy multi touch gestures I was used to from osx.What were my options? The wiki suggested using the xf86-input-mtrack driver which translates the commongestures to mouse buttons.

But no gestures (except for, well two finger scrolling, if youcall that "gesture"). Touchégg to the rescue!A simple program whic (HowTos)
