Ubuntu 18.04 multitouch

Asked by Pitrack on 2018-05-11

Hi,

I'm trying to make multitouch work on my Yoga 720 touchable screen.
- Zoom in / out in libre office or PDF viewer works (is it related ?)
- Pressing multiple areas on screen don't (but was working in 17.10)
- I use Bitwig and SunVox to test (musical softwares with virtual piano keyboard and other multitouchable controllers)
- When I press an area it works. If I press two areas at the same time It does not work. If I press one areas and another one while keeping the first one pressed, the first one works and the second one dont or trigger the sound of the first one (do not know if I am understandable ;-) )

Is it supposed to work ? Is it an ubuntu issue ? Is it a client software issue (bitwig / sunvox) ?

Thanks

By disabling the Gesture parameter for my touchscreen multitouch is working. But no more pinch to zoom or to finger to scroll ... no more Gestures !

Both should be able to work together.

Should I open an issue ?
