Ubuntu – Dell XPS 13 9350 touchpad multi finger gesture on Ubuntu 19.04

dellgesturesmulti-touchtouchpadxps

Having installed and set-up my Ubuntu 19.04 to my liking I found out that I missed the multi-finger gestures that were available on Windows 10.

The two-finger scrolling works fine.

Examples of missing features:

  1. Three fingers swiping for quick window switching.
  2. Four fingers tap for opening action center.
  3. Four fingers swiping for Alt + Tab like functionality.

I don't really remember them all.

Can anyone help?

  • Not an exact answer (I'm a newbie to Ubuntu) but as a guide into a possible solution.

    I got three finger gestures working using Rachit Kinger's answer (posted for 18.04 LTS) to Touchpad Gestures in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    Which uses a combination of:

    libinput-gestures
    xdotool
    fusuma (ruby-gem)
    

    For my purposes the default configuration was just fine. But for there is also some description on customization in the post.

    I added fusuma -d to autostart following Takkat's answer (applicable since 14.04) to How do I start applications automatically on login?
