I'm trying to get multi-touch gestures working on my Dell XPS 15. Two finger scrolling works but three or four finger gestures do not. I know that the touchpad is capable of multi-touch gestures because it works fine in Windows. I've tried several things already:

  • Installing touchegg from the repository
  • Installing touchegg from source
  • Installing Sputnik kernel and policykit updates from Sputnik PPAs

The first fails with a segmentation fault when run, the second gives errors during compile about missing files, and the third installed fine but nothing changed. Compilation errors can be seen here.
