Having touchpad gestures enhances the gnome experience greatly. I think it would be nice to include them.
In gnome, it can be implemented in two ways:
- gnome shell extension https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1253/extended-gestures/
This option is extremely simple and works pretty okay. However, it only works in a wayland session and has very limited configuration.
- libinput-gestures (and gesture-manager)
This option is more complicated and has possibly more overhead, but is extremely flexible. It allows binding arbitrary commands to gestures, has more gestures than the shell extension and can be used with xorg and also outside gnome.
I think we could include one of these in the gnome profile. Not necessarily enabled, because it would be unnecessary overhead for people who don’t have the hardware for it. But installed and preconfigured.
@Ste74, what do you think about this?
