Synaptics brings multi-touch to Linux-based PCs

Human interface solutions developer Synaptics Inc. on Monday announced it has made its Synaptics Gesture Suite available for Linux-based devices. This move brings multi-touch support to the open source operating system for the first time. Synaptics currently offers its multi-touch interface in Windows-based TouchPad devices.

The Synaptics Gesture Suite for Linux can also be applied to Google Chrome OS in devices that range from small remote controls, through netbooks to notebook PCs and other custom OEM devices. Other supported Linux-based operating systems include Fedora, Millos Linpus, Red Flag, SuSE, Ubuntu and Xandros.

The SGS for Linux allows users to perform two-finger scrolling, pinch-to-zoom, rotation, three-finger flick, three-finger press, momentum, and chiral scrolling.
