We want to incorporate gestures in our tool and they're working perfectly on OSX
(I use Mavericks & Eclipse Kepler, Luna).

However on Windows 7/8 (32-bit) we can't get them running at all. Display.getTouchEnabled() returns 'false'. We than bought the Logitech T650 touchpad, and with it installed Display.getTouchEnabled() returns 'true' but no events of type 'SWT.Gesture' are delivered (and no OS.WM_GESTURE msgs are received in Control.windowProc(...)).

Do we have to tell windows to forward the gestures to Eclipse instead of translating them into wheel events, ... somehow?

Thanks in advance,
Christian

The following thread in the Logitech forum seems to provide the disappointing answer:
At least the T650 is not a scrap of help! Evil or Very Mad
