This question already has an answer here:

I can't find a way to modify the touchpad gestures Unity uses by default on Ubuntu 12.04/12.10.

Tried with Ginn, but it shows error subscribing to gestures and it seems because of Unity.

Is there a way of customize the trackpad gestures of Unity?

The Easystroke gesture-recognition app should be able to define some new multitouch gestures as well as edit existing ones. Apple's multi-touch trackpad and corresponding gesture recognition, is by far the best implementation of gesture tracking we've seen yet. Easystroke however, is a fair contender with the mac gesture recognition. Easystroke allows users to create gestures with their mouse that will perform specified actions, such as open a web browser or view mail.

Find more tips/tricks and application details at the developer page.

Touchegg & uTouch

Touchegg combined with the uTouch metapackage allow users to create and edit multi-touch gestures on a trackpad. These applications when downloaded from the Ubuntu Software center create an editable config file.

I used to use Touchegg in ubuntu 14.04 to configure 3 finger swipe to switch workspaces like apple. Searching around a little bit it seems it will work on 12.10. However, I can't comment on the stability of it. I've since migrated away from it and just use keyboard shortcuts.
