I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and I am trying to install touchegg so I can have multi-touch on my mousepad. I was following the guide here but I am not able to compile the source for some reason. Can someone please help me?

When I reach the part that says to run make on the terminal I get:

make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.

use and place all the log of your try. – Raja Jan 27 '13 at 8:55
Where did you run make? It sounds like you just ran make out of nowhere, instead of getting into the directory with the source files you just extracted from the archive you downloaded. – njsg Jan 27 '13 at 9:37

first you must qmake, it will create a makefile document, then make then sudo make install

to install qmake: sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake
