Here is another preview of my gesture recognition program for KDE.

This time with configurations options for the OSD colors and behaviour.

Freehand Gestures allows you to open applications using pure, always active, multi level, mouse gestures not involving ANY keypresses at all. It works on top of other applications and does not interrupt their focus, displaying actions and states in an on screen display.

The gestures dont care how small or big they are drawn on the screen. However, the way they are drawn DOES matter.


go to download directory

tar -xvf gesture-.tar.gz
cd gesture
make install (Must be run as root)

if ./configure fails, try adding --prefix=/usr/kde/3.4/ with your correct kde version number (eg. ./configure --prefix=/usr/kde/3.4/)

Run the program by simply typing gesture

The first time the program is run, it copies the default configuration files to ~/.kde/share/apps/gesture if none exists at this location.

If anybody is interested in helping out with this project or have any suggestions, let me know!


PS. I really need some feedback and suggestions for enhancements! :-)


Changes in 0.4

Added new configuration subsystem

Added config options for OSD colors and behaviour

Many internal changes and code reorganizations

Changes in 0.3.3

Added gui state and action editor

Preperations for future features

Major code restructuring

Bugfixes, especially one very nasty missing include file that only made the build fail on some systems

Changes in 0.3:

Now runs as a tray icon
Easily arm/disarm gesture recognition by clicking on tray icon
Tray icon context menu
Display global gestures
Major internal changes/refactoring

Changes in 0.2:

Added much better graphics
Added more gestures
Lots of bug fixes

About me: I am one of the biggest fans(if not the biggest) of mouse gesturse on the planet, . And my biggest problem with linux has been a gesture app that doesn't suck. So its with huge hope that I am gonna try your app. :)

Suggestion: Simple one, just try strokeit ( for windows) and you will see exactly what mouse gestures can do, and why they should be compulsory part of any OS.

Thanks for the effort, hopefully your app would rock like strokeit. http://www.tcbmi.com/strokeit/forum/

I know that there has not been any updates for a while, but I am trying to figure out what to do next! I still really need some feedback about what features people would like to see added!

I actually have a protoype of a pretty nice gesture editor (an app that lets you define new gestures by drawing them on the screen a number of times) but I am having a hard time figuring out how to integrate it with the rest of the app as this requires a completely new file format. Also, once you have defined a nice gesture, where does the graphics to be shown on the screen come from?

I could really need some help developing this app as it is rapidly growin too large for me with my limited free time.

Things I needed to do for it to compile (Ubuntu 6.06 LTS + KDE)
* go to /usr/bin and do sudo ln -s automake-1.9 automake-1.6 and sudo ln -s aclocal-1.9 aclocal-1.6 (somehow it tried to execute the 1.6 version while I only have 1.4 and 1.9)
* edit to src/ctrayicon.h and add #include below the other header files.
Now it seems to run, let's try it...

On KateOS3.0 to compile Gesturu-0.4 do:
- cd /usr/bin ; ln -s automake-1.9 automake-1.6 ; ln -s aclocal-1.9 aclocal-1.6
- cd /path_to_Gesture/src ; nano/gedit/kate/other_editor ctrayicon.h and add "#include " before the other include statements in ctrayicon.h.

Now it will compile and run.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
