At the moment, Bitwig’s Linux touchpad support is lacking:
- There is no way to scroll horizontally with the touchpad
- Two finger scrolling is done in discrete jumps, rather than a smooth scroll
- No gesture support (2 finger pinch)
This problem has been tested on Fedora 35 using the generic libinput drivers on both xorg and wayland sessions. (Other scenarios welcome, just edit this description).
Linux Bitwig users having a worse user experience than their counterparts in the other support platforms, for features that work in other Linux applications.
Bitwig thankfully has invested on a Linux version since the beginning, making the most powerful DAW natively running in this operating system. Feature parity is being achieved across all functionalities. This problem feels like a stain in a very good Linux track record.
