KDE Plasma Does Gestures Globally


Recommended Posts

This is going to be a surprise to a number of people out there, but not only does the KDE Plasma desktop environment have gestures built in, but it has had them since the 3.2 (roughly) release. Gestures in KDE Plasma aren't just tied to the browser (I covered Firefox mouse gestues here), but pretty much anything in the desktop environment. With a few flicks of the mouse, you can make magic happen across your entire desktop experience. It all sounds new and exciting, but the functionality has been there for years and few people seem to know about this excellent feature. Let me tell you how it works.

Thought you KDE fanboies might find this interesting. Guess it might be old news to you though. :breakfast:

I've never used gestures on the desktop, only in browsers, but it is pretty neato. :)

 

fanboie... HA! I remember a time when I detested all things KDE (4). ;)

Gestures are cool! I used them in KDE 3 but haven't enabled them in 4 yet.

Fire Gestures is a great add-on for Firefox/Iceweasel. :thumbsup: B)
