Touchpad gestures on X11

Possibly a dumb question, but: is there a particular reason why touchpad gestures are not working on X11?

I’ve switched to X11 from Wayland today and noticed that they simply aren’t working.

None, they simply didn’t implement them because the developers decided to concentrate only on Wayland.
For gestures I use libinput-gestures (it also has a GUI in QT).
Unfortunately KWIN does not support 1:1 gestures on X11.
On the other hand, there is an extension on GNOME that allows 1:1 gestures on X11 as well. It is a pity that no one has yet done something similar for Kwin.

I see, thanks.

And thanks for the pointer to libinput-gestures, I’ll give it a go. I don’t have a need for 1:1 gestures in particular, so it might work well enough for me.
