In an attempt to get multitouch working on a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.10 I followed the instructions to testing multitouch as indicated here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Multitouch/Testing. After checking my trackpad did indeed report values I continued to install geisview. Trying to run Geisview only results in the following output in the terminal:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/geisview", line 27, in <module>
    import geis
ImportError: No module named 'geis'

I did try running it as root, installing libgeis1, libgeis-dev, libgeis-doc and python-geis.

Expected Result:
Geisview telling me wheather my device and gesture stack are working or not.

Actual Result:
Geisview crashing.
