Does someone happen to know if is there is a program / pkg that gives the possibility using touchpad gestures? I mean, like, independent from the desktop.
The idea is that I can browse with Firefox or Vivaldi with the same gestures; Vivaldi has mouse gestures all right, but not for the touchpad.
And Firefox does not have any native gestures, only with extensions.
Sounds like I am just lazy, which is true, but still have to ask.
I am currenly trying KDE btw.
Try libinput-gestures / gesture-manager. If you combine with xdotool, it should do what you want.
You will also probably need something like saka key or vim vixen in both browsers - example:
- Define “x” in saka key to go back in history.
- Define three finger swipe left in gesture-manager as
xdotool key x
- Swipe left…
Personally I use vimium, I define a, z, x, d & c (I am left handed) as:
map a scrollToTop
map z scrollToBottom
map x goBack
map d goForward
map c removeTab
Don’t need gestures at all.
I had no idea this existed xD, I have not been dwelling in linux for long,
I wil take a look at this,
Ok, I did not forget about this, it is just that I did some shennanigans and I ended with a fresh install, lol, I have a knack for that,
So, I found libinput-gestures-git and gesture-manager-git in the AUR, but when I launch Gesture Manager, I get
Launching Gesture manager (failed)
execvp: Exec format error
Check the top line of
It should be
#!/bin/bash - there is a misplaced “\”
All right, It works now, Much appreciated,
