Back und forth gestures on an ASUS notebook

  • Hi.

    I'm trying to make the switch from Chrome to Opera on my ASUS Zenbook. Everything works fine so far, but the gestures from the ASUS Smart Gesture app don't work. On Chrome, Firefox and Edge they work.

    So I checked this config file of the app, where it seems they configure special behavior for certain apps.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\ASUS Smart Gesture\AsTPCenter\TPProfile_Win10.xml

    For chrome.exe there is:

    <ap name="chrome.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_0" target_name="Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    <ap name="chrome.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" target_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    <ap name="chrome.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" target_name="Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    

    So my guess would be, that if I know the values for the class_name and target_name attributes it may be working.

    Could you help me figuring these out?

  • Same problem. Anyone?

  • Hello!

    Finally I've solved it! 🙂
    First I had no idea because the internet wasn't that helpful. Than I remembered this here:

    "On 12 February 2013, Opera announced it would drop its own Presto engine in favour of WebKit as implemented by Google's Chrome browser, using code from the Chromium project."

    So I've copied the lines for the Chrome Broswer and replaced "chrome.exe" with "opera.exe". It works!

    <ap name="opera.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_0" target_name="Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    <ap name="opera.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" target_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    <ap name="opera.exe" class_name="Chrome_WidgetWin_1" target_name="Chrome_RenderWidgetHostHWND" title_name="" target_type="0" support="33413" pan_filter_x="5" pan_filter_y="5" zoom_filter="1" pan_type="15" es_filter="5" es_type="15" zoom_type="0" rotate_type="0" swipe_type="3"/>
    

    Save the modified file (open file as admin, e.g. with Notepad++), reboot your system, be happy! 🙂

    Greetings
