I've a question about the gesture handling of jogl NEWT: Is it supported only under Android and Windows? I tried it with X11/Linux but it doesn't work. As I looked into the sources I can't find any support for the touch events of the X server ...
Is this right and is there a special reason (technical?) why jogl NEWT is not supporting the touch events of X11?
meanwhile I have implement a solution for linux and the X11 server. The solution is pretty easy:
Since version X11R7.7 (X.Org 1.12.2) touch events are supported from X server over the XInput interface. Jogl use the Xinput interface for all input events already so there was only to implement some configuration and event handling. Works like a charm.
If the jogl community is interested in this I can contribute it to github repository as described in the jogamp wiki.
elect has some bug fixes to add into JOGL too. We'd like to push a minor release (2.3.3?) before working on JOGL 2.4.0. It's difficult to give a planned release date as I have to review the numerous contributions made by Phil on Java3D 1.7.0 (big kudos to him) and I maintain JogAmp's Ardor3D Continuation.
