Open Input Framework gesture support in toolkits (GTK+, Qt, Nux)

Registered by Chase Douglas on 2011-04-29

We have a solid foundation for gesture support through the GEIS API. The
advanced interface should allow us to integrate gestures in a meaningful
way in the two major toolkits, Qt and GTK+.

In Qt, we will hook up OIF gestures as the default gesture
recognizer. This will be similar to the effort to add multitouch support
to Qt. In both cases, Qt already has a stable API so this is merely a
matter of hooking up the plumbing.

In GTK+, we will need to coordinate with the GTK+ developers such as
Carlos Garnacho. He has built a multitouch extension for GTK+, and we
should investigate ways in which we can extend the interface to gestures
using OIF.

In this session we will discuss the details of how to undertake this
work, including road blocks to integrate support and how to leverage
community participation in this endeavor.
