I have installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my Acer Apsire V5 touch, and I want to know hot to activate the gestures on my clickpad in Gnome SHell, because in Unity I can use them with no problems.

I really like unity more than Gnome- Shell, but I use the laptop to work and I need something usable and stable, and the globar menu bar, in the 12.10 version has a lot of bugs.

So, is there a way to use the gestures on Gnome Shell?


  • Pinch to Zoom
  • Move windows with 3 fingers
  • "Natural scroll"
  • etc...

And if it's possible to fully use the touch screen, because it fails when I do a click on it.
