JavaFX8: Multittouch support under Linux

Hello all!

Is multitouch-input supposed to be supported on Java 8 SE running on Linux? I use a capacitive touch screen, with a DMC controller, connected to a Ubuntu 13.10 PC via USB, and none of the sample code that I've tried seems to recognize any touch events. Under Windows 7, touch events are recognized, I can swipe, zoom, etc.

So I wonder, if multitouch input is simply not supported under Linux with JavaFX 8, or I have another problem.

Best regards,
