    Gnome 3 has gesture support. I don't think many are built in, certainly not as many as mac OS gives you out of the box. But you can go wild:
  • Two fingers horizontal swipe for ALT-TAB | 2021-04-07
    Hi, before G40 I use this extension to manage swipe gestures, now with native gnome gestures I have some problem to switch from application to another application in the same workspace; is there a way to use two fingers horizontal swipe for emulate the ALT-TAB function? Thx

    This is really dependent on your desktop environment. For example, this is a GNOME extension that adds extra touchpad gestures.

    Are you using X11 or Wayland? The for that extension says that it only works on Wayland (just like Gnome's built-in support for touchpad gestures).
  • 2 Finger History Navigation in Chrome/Chromium | 2021-02-03
    Also looking for an answer to this. I've tried gnome-shell-extended-gestures and it lets me map a multitouch gesture to "back", but only 3 or 4 finger gestures. No luck there for the 2 finger horizontal history controls I'm used to with Windows and ChromeOS.
