Freehand Gestures

Submitted:  Apr 26 2005


Here is a VERY early preview of a little something I am working on. This is mostly for advanced users as it is NOT ready for serious use yet..

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. Currently I have only included a few Gestures in the config file, but more will be included!

The gestures dont care how small or big they are drawn on the screen. However, the way they are drawn DOES matter, an O gesture for example starts at the top and are drawn counter clockwise, while a P starts at the bottom.

Later the gestures will be expanded to more than just letters and numbers.

This program requires that libxosd is installed (on Gentoo, emerge xosd).

To build the program, unzip the file, enter the director in a command prompt and type \"./configure\" and when that is done, type \"make\".

There is no real instalation script yet, sorry, so to use the program, copy the executable from the src subfolder, and the xml-file from the config folder somewhere and run it. (These two files must be in the same directory)

The xnl-config file should be fairly simple to edit. You should not change the gestures (I will add more soon) but the states and actions can be freely editet. Take note that the program does not behave well if there are any errors in the config file!!

I know this is very much a work in progress, but I would really like to get some feedback if the whole concept is a good idea or not! :-)

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

Well, sort of but not quite. I build this to be more of a full user interface than the very "hotkey" oriented KHotkeys.

My gestures do not require any mouse (or any other) buttons to be pressed. Also my program is designed around visual feedback. Lastly, In this program you can have infinite layers of groups meaning that each gesture can have different meaning depending on contex (which you always know due to the visual feedback)

 Pop Mouse

There is an old program for Windows called Pop-Mouse that is similar to this idea. It is no longer developed and the company went out of business, but I still have to have this program on any Windows box I use. It uses what it calls "glicks". You just shake the mouse back and forth, up and down, or in a circle and it would do just about anything. For example a quick counter-clockwise circle would go back in a web browser. If you're interested in trying in out, and have a Windows box handy, I will send you the setup program.

I very rarely use Windows any more, but thanks for the offer! :-)

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.
