Install Easystroke Mouse Gesture Recognition On Ubuntu.

Easystroke is a gesture-recognition application for X11. Gestures or strokes are movements that you make with you mouse (or your pen, finger etc.) while holding down a specific mouse button.

 

Easystroke will execute certain actions if it recognizes the stroke; currently easystroke can emulate key presses, execute shell commands, hold down modifiers and emulate a scroll wheel.

 

The program was designed with Tablet PCs in mind and can be used effectively even without access to a keyboard.

 

Easystroke tries to provide an intuitive and efficient user interface, while at the same time being highly configurable and offering many advanced features.

To install Easystroke on Ubuntu, open the Terminal and issue these commands:
