Linux We all know Synaptics, the company that seems to produce just about every touchpad you can get your hands fingers on. Their touchpads also do a lot of multitouch and gesture stuff, but up until now, their set of gestures, the Synaptics Gesture Suite, was only available on Windows. Luckily, they've ported it over to Linux, and made it available for OEMs building Linux laptops.

That is because you purchased a computer for Windows and tried installing linux on it.[q]

I have one of the first acer one models available with the linux version on it, but that was even worse than windows to work with.
For daily use I installed ubuntu which works nicer, but not all hardware works like it should.

[q]But I see your point. It is still good news that they did the driver. It's better than before. Many people will be happy with that. I just expect more.


I would also be more pleased with more, but we already should be happy with what they did and not directly start to talk about more.

By the way it can indirectly be included in distro's just like you can enable some video drivers in ubuntu.
