Bug Description

I've upgraded to Stellarium 0.13.1 under Ubuntu 14.04 on a Samsung Slate 7. The new multitouch pinch zoom works great. I can also navigate the program using my tablet pen. However, after the upgrade I can no longer navigate the program or look in different directions without using the pen (which used to work fine before the upgrade, of course before the upgrade I had no pinch zoom). Is there a way I can keep both the pinch zoom AND use Stellarium without the pen? The tablet is heavy, and I don't want to accidentally drop it outside while trying to hold it overhead with one hand and pen in the other. Thanks!

We can try enable multitouch support on linux systems, but developers does not have any touch devices. Could you make testing of those changes, if we introduce it?

Unfortunately, no. I only had it for a short period of time. I decided to get a lighter tablet which sadly was a Windows device.
