Openbox touchpad actions
Hi I am a very happy debian user, I've built a light openbox desktop from a minimal debian stable setup.
What i like about openbox is its speed and easy of use, especially due to keybinds.
Since my machine is an asus k55v equiped with a great multi-touch capable touchpad I’d like to bind some of the actions called by keybinds to its extra buttons or even to multi-finger gestures, and it would be great if that could be achieved without too many extra packages and additional daemons running.
For expample I’d like to be able to maximize a window by pressing the touchpad’s top-left corner or to change window with a three-finger scrolling using the alt-tab keybind however, nothing fancy a la mac
Anyone who did something similar or is also interested in doing it??
P.S. I use synclient to configure my touchpad at every startup having this little script run by openbox
synclient TapButton1=1 TapButton2=3 TapButton3=2 VertTwoFingerScroll=1 HorizTwoFingerScroll=1

you could check out the archwiki which has proved helpful setting up my touchpad on my crunchbang (debian-based) install.
i'm not allow to post links yet, just search "touchpad synaptics" on wiki.archlinux.org.
