im yet to try this but im wanting to incorporate three finger scrolling (back = flick with three fingers to the left ) . I've got moblin 2.1. Any ideas as to where to start? I've had a look and found :

at (www)

Trying to run synclient -m -100 gives errors.

I guess the next stage will be to compile the code and map it to the gesture to 'back'. I find this very useful on my 1000he xp install.

Moblin is quite good but very fast, it looks the best but its very simple.
