Need to know how to enable touch gestures like multi-finger swipe to the next workspace...

Ubuntu has libinput-gestures, but how do I install that on Fedora?

All of the Copr repositories I have seen are years out of date..

The following works for me in Fedora 29!

# Install Requirements
sudo dnf install \
            xdotool \
            wmctrl \

# Add Groups
sudo gpasswd -a $USER input
exec sg input newgrp $(id -gn)

# Add Multitouch Gestures
cd /usr/src
sudo git clone https://github.com/bulletmark/libinput-gestures.git
cd libinput-gestures
sudo make install
libinput-gestures-setup autostart
libinput-gestures-setup start

NOTE: There should be no errors, if there are logging out and back in fixes the issue.


To configure the options copy /etc/libinput-gestures.conf to ~/.config/libinput-gestures.conf and edit as needed.
