A while ago, I wrote a small praising on a touch pad input system in Zorin.
Well, it is almost perfect, except for one minor touch (pan intended). When I was using macOS, I always enabled three-finger-drag, which allowed me to press with three fingers on the top of opened window and move it around. It also let me select a text by dragging on it.
This is a tutorial to add this missing function, called three-finger-drag. The tutorial is based on:
Install the following (some of them might be already installed):
$ sudo apt install -y python3 python3-setuptools xdotool wmctrl python3-gi libinput-tools python-gobject git
Add user to input group:
$ sudo gpasswd -a $USER input
IMPORTANT: make sure to Reboot immediately after this. Logout will not work.
Download a file:
Release Initial Release · marsqing/libinput-three-finger-drag · GitHub
Uncompress it and copy the binary file to:
and set it to autostart
Reboot and enjoy truly Mac style input system
