Install Touchegg in OpenSuse 12.3


Hi everyone, I recently installed OpenSuse 12.3 on my laptop. Before this, I was using Ubuntu 12.10, and used Touchegg to use gestures. I tried to install Touchegg, but the instructions given are only for Ubuntu, even when compiling from source: https://code.google.com/p/touchegg/w...pileSourceCode

Has anyone had any success with this program? I've tried looking on Google, but haven't been able to find anything. Or is there another program that I can use to activate gestures such as 3 and 4 finger swipe?

Thanks

well in 12.2 "utouch" is not in the repos
everything else is

from the touchegg site there is a fedora 17 rpm package
http://pkgs.org/download/touchegg

and a source "touchegg-1.1.1.tar.gz "

please post the errors you are getting
"gmake" should not error ( unless it is not installed )
but "make" might
And i am betting it is this if you did not install "utouch-geis"
Code:
g++ -c -m64 -pipe -O2 -Wall -W -D_REENTRANT -DQT_WEBKIT -DQT_NO_DEBUG -DQT_XML_LIB -DQT_GUI_LIB -DQT_CORE_LIB -DQT_SHARED -I/usr/share/qt4/mkspecs/default -I. -I/usr/include/QtCore -I/usr/include/QtGui -I/usr/include/QtXml -I/usr/include -I. -o Config.o src/touchegg/config/Config.cpp
In file included from src/touchegg/config/Config.h:24:0,
                 from src/touchegg/config/Config.cpp:21:
./src/touchegg/util/Include.h:36:27: fatal error: geis/geis.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.

build the "utouch-geis" source ( is looking like it is not supported any longer -- 404 errors )
http://www.ohloh.net/p/utouch-geis
a SRC rpm is here
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....2.1-1.src.rpm
rebuild the rpm


I can not use this so this is about as far as i can go

build and install the "utouch-geis" source
then touchegg

I tried, and managed to install "utouch-geis", but that didn't seem to work. It's not too big of a deal, it just takes some getting used to, since I've been using the gestures for a while. I am getting the error message that you posted.

that error is about the header NOT being found

if you did install the source then there will be a folder in "/usr/include/????"

check it and make 100% sure that the folders are the name being looked for
in this case
" /usr/include/geis/geis.h "
-- and the other headers ---
" /usr/include/geis/????.h "

it might be called something like "/usr/include/utouch-geis/geis.h "

a lot of code DEFAULTS to installing to /usr/local
/usr/local is not used in opensuse

When i build code i always check the install location
and normally add to the configure line
------------
./configure --prefix=/usr
-----------

Ok, so what I did was found the Fedora rpm's for libframe, libgrail, and libgeis, and installed them in that order. Then the Touchegg rpm installed without a problem. It works ok. I've only got 4-finger swipe to work for now, everything else isn't detected.
