Comment 1 Peter Hutterer 2012-06-19 21:32:43 EDT
this is actually intended. for true multitouch screens we don't do gesture interpretation in the driver and leave it up to the client stack to do so. this of course leaves us with a gap until the clients all support it properly, but the alternative is a mess (as the synaptics driver shows). sorry.
