I am wondering how the user in this video got his W510 configured to use multi-touch with his touchscreen. I did a sudo apt-get install utouch but I need some handholding in where to go next.

Much appreciated!

Did you ever get multi-touch working? – hayd Sep 27 '13 at 0:20

I think in the gestures in the video are all based on a single touch which is acting as a mouse. You could configure those gestures using Easystroke Gesture Recognition application which is available from the repository.

I just received my X220 multitouch tablet and asked a question about ways to improve multitouch in Ubuntu 12.04, you might be interested in that question as well as hopefully more answers will be provided, or I figure things out.

Thank you for your comment and link to your question. It is helpful to know that you think it is just single touch gestures. I will follow your thread and experience as it will be similar to mine I think. – Elijah Lynn May 7 '12 at 0:03
Okay I finally got Easystroke up and running and it works nicely. I can't seem to get multitouch working by default though, guess I have some more reading to do. – Elijah Lynn Oct 15 '12 at 13:06
