Ginn: gestures for un-converted apps (demos on youtube!)


Ikbel has just produced a couple demo videos for some software he's working on. Not part of the uTouch stack, it will provide us with a means of supporting limited gestures in applications (and/or toolkits) that don't have multi-touch support.

This will be nice complement to Cody Russell's work on getting gestures/MT ready for GTK apps.

Ginn does this by connecting gestures to key presses and injecting this information into applications. Ikbel's daemon will run in the background and perform such actions. The use of dbus is also possible.

Here are some demos!

Also, there is a project page created here:

No code has been pushed up to trunk yet, but Ikbel's getting close to the point of doing so.
