Makes your touchpad great.

Touchgreat is a small program I’m developing that allows you to bind commands to touchpad gestures. But not the simple way many programs already out there are doing it by just executing a key combo when a gesture is finished.
With Touchgreat it is possible to:

  1. Execute every program, not only key combos
  2. Execute commands at the beginning, an update and the end of a gesture
  3. Use the relative finger movement in a python eval() as arguments for the command

Here is the git repository with a README for installation and configuration instructions. This blog post will cover how touchgreat works and show a example configuration with compiz.
This blog post shows the first version of touchgreat and how I developed it.
