Anyone installed Fusuma on EOS?

Fusuma is a multitouch gesture recognizer for touchpad

I have, why?

How did you do it? $ gem install fusuma doesn’t exactly install it, only download the fusuma-1.11.1.gem to /usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.7.0/cache
I managed to install it by extracting it.

From aur.

$ sudo gpasswd -a $USER input
$ newgrp input
$ sudo gem install fusuma
$ sudo pacman -S xdotool
$ mkdir -p ~/.config/fusuma
$ nano ~/.config/fusuma/config.yml

Add, what you find in > Fusuma > for xdotool and save.
$ fusuma

Doesn’t work. :confused:

Find Fusuma in /usr.
Instead of Fusuma, found fusuma-1.11.1.gem in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.7.0/cache/, which hadn’t got extracted/installed. So, extracted it manually and placed it in /usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.7.0/gems/, and made a symlink of /usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.7.0/gems/fusuma/exe/fusuma to ~/.config/autostart-scripts and rebooted.

Fusuma was in and running. :slight_smile:

If you install from aur it is in:

which fusuma

It is just a ruby script:

# This file was generated by RubyGems.
# The application 'fusuma' is installed as part of a gem, and
# this file is here to facilitate running it.

require 'rubygems'

version = ">= 0.a"

str = ARGV.first
if str
  str = str.b[/\A_(.*)_\z/, 1]
  if str and Gem::Version.correct?(str)
    version = str

if Gem.respond_to?(:activate_bin_path)
load Gem.activate_bin_path('fusuma', 'fusuma', version)
gem "fusuma", version
load Gem.bin_path("fusuma", "fusuma", version)

I didn’t look in AUR.
Anyway, you can place the extracted folder anywhere and make symlink to the fusuma/exe/fusuma in the ~/.config/autostart-scripts and reboot.
Good to know. :slight_smile:

Merry Christmas!
