I've read the thread here How can I disable arbitrary default multitouch gestures in Unity? where people seem to have solved their problems with touchegg in 12.10.
As for me, I'm able to install everything without errors but then when I bring up touchegg none of the gestures are recognized.
Do I need to get utouch installed? It is not a recognized package for 12.10.
When I run dpkg-buildpackage I have to use sudo. Could this affect the process? Should I get fakeroot?
p.s. I know my touchpad at least supports 3-finger gestures because I have used them with windows 8.
