@neon_overload My bad, I missed that bit.

comment How do I get randomness in command-line?
Note that RANDOM % N doesn't result in an equal distribution unless the number of possible values of RANDOM (32768) is divisible by N. To see this, imagine the range of RANDOM was instead 0-4 (5 possible values), and N is 2: there's three ways for $RANDOM % 2 to yield 0 (if $RANDOM yields 0, 2, 4) but two ways for it to yield 1 (1, 3). For an equal distribution you'd have to find the greatest multiple of N that's smaller than 32767 and ignore any random values that are larger than that. In the previous example that'd amount to ignoring 5, which is larger than 4.

revised Laptop touchpad triggering 3-finger gestures randomly
Replaced terminal output with pastebin link, reformatted the gesture list since the list markup isn't working.

Right. The bit about the windows getting grabbed and moved is likely being triggered the same way as the Grab Handles were, since there's supposed to be a 3-finger gesture for moving windows: wiki.ubuntu.com/Multitouch I'll probably post a separate question soon to address that issue.

Sorry if my comments weren't clear enough. Disabling the plug-in does stop the Grab Handles from appearing.
