The closest i think you'll get with KDE4 is:
But i don't (know|think) that this is capable of multitouch gestures.
I would have to guess that you'd need a lower-level driver to translate
the intercepted gestures into something X11 could ingest (keycodes, ???)
"...There's a project called "Touchégg", you can see it
here http://code.google.com/p/touchegg/ that allows you to
customize gestures with up to 5 fingers. I'm testing it with
my Kubuntu powered MacBook Air, and it's really great. It
needs to be polished a bit, but lets you do things like "if
I drag 4 fingers in the up direction, send Ctrl + F12 key
seems to indicate that i'm probably right about the above w.r.t 'touchegg'.
once you assign that, then use khotkeys to assign that function
to a KDE action.
kcmshell4 khotkeys kcm_keyboard keys standard_actions mouse kcm_synaptiks
will get you most of the input-based kcm modules in one place.
I do see a Debian Wheezy package of interest:
$ apt-file list xserver-xorg-input-multitouch
$ aptitude show xserver-xorg-input-multitouch
Description: Multitouch X input driver
This X input driver provides gestures support for multitouch touchpads, in particular those with integrated button.
