No, Touchégg not uses Ginn and not is a GUI for Ginn. Touchégg has two
parts, the daemon to get the gestures (touchegg) and the GUI to
configure it (touchegg-gui).

Touchégg targets the window manager and the applications, for example
you can configure Touchégg to use in Firefox a "three finger drag to
the left" to go backward and use the same gesture in other application
(or globally) to make another action like minimize a window. The
action asociated to the gesture will change depending the in what
window you make the gesture (ie window under the cursor ;))
A screenshot of the Natty version GUI for see the idea:

With applications that uses own gestures I have problems because
Touchégg intercede on it, I'll try to improve this bug.
