Ubuntu also has a touch layer I'd love to be able to take advantage of, 
but at this time the desktop LiveCode engine doesn't support multitouch 
input.

I submitted a request for this some time ago:

Given the ever-larger variety of systems that use multitouch I hope this 
will be able to be reevaluated in the priority queue.  They have the 
syntax and core support, and now we need to map those to the relevant 
desktop APIs as has already been done for tablets and phones.
