Re: implementing touchpad gestures under gnome.


I have absolutely no idea who you could talk to about implementing
something like this. Sounds like it would require support at multiple
levels (application level for forward/redo/back/undo), GTK+ level for
some things and window manager level.

I've CC'ed this email to the desktop-devel-list, hopefully you can share
your ideas there and work out who you need to talk to.
