Bangalore: Synaptics has made its Synaptics Gesture Suite available for Linux-based devices. This shift brings multi-touch support to the open source operating system. Currently it offers multi-touch interface in Windows-based TouchPad devices. The SGS for Linux allows users to perform two-finger scrolling, pinch-to-zoom, rotation, three-finger flick, three-finger press, momentum, and chiral scrolling.

The Synaptics Gesture Suite for Linux can also be applied to Google Chrome OS in devices that range from small remote controls, through netbooks to notebook PCs and other custom OEM devices. Other supported Linux-based operating systems include Fedora, Millos Linpus, Red Flag, SuSE, Ubuntu and Xandros.
