31.5 Using Gesture Recognition

With xstroke, you can use gestures with your pen or other pointing devices as input for applications on the X Window System. The xstroke alphabet is a unistroke alphabet that resembles the Graffiti* alphabet. When activated, xstroke sends the input to the currently focused window.

  1. Start xstroke from the main menu or with xstroke from a shell. This adds a pencil icon to your system tray.

  2. Start the application for which you want to create text input with the pen (for example, a terminal window, a text editor, or an OpenOffice.org Writer).

  3. To activate the gesture recognition mode, click the pencil icon once.

  4. Perform some gestures on the graphics tablet with the pen or another pointing device. xstroke captures the gestures and transfers them to text that appears in the application window that has the focus.

  5. To switch focus to a different window, click the desired window with the pen and hold for a moment (or use the keyboard shortcut defined in your desktop's control center).

  6. To deactivate the gesture recognition mode, click the pencil icon again.
