Linux finally gets multitouch gesture touchpad support

April 20, 2010 at 12:43 pm

SynapticsSynaptics has announced the Gesture Suite for Linux that at long last brings multitouch gesture support for touchpads. A number of Linux flavours are supported including Google Chrome OS, Fedora, Ubuntu, RedFlag, SuSE, and Xandros.

Current Linux netbook owners will be disappointed to hear that a downloadable update is not available. The software is only available to OEM partners, so hopefully we’ll see some standalone Linux netbooks fully embracing this latest update in the future.
