Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and have a multitouch capable screen (3M MicroTouch USB controller) but can't get any touch events inside a browser window (Firefox or Chromium).

I see all gestures with geistest -w WINDOWID program. I have a multitouch demo tetris program which works. So basically the touch screen is supported on a lower level, but both browser applications don't get any touch events, only mouse events.

What do I have to do to get a proper setup for this?
