Why should you want to run tdm run ontop of kwin? What I usually do in cases like this: start with clean X and get "some" windowmanager working, in my case fvwm. Then look what is missing - most likely hardware keys linked to acpi and not keyboard, so watch "acpi_listen" and "dmesg -w" for funny things when pressing keys, also "xev". In most cases you do definitly do not want to rely on somebody elses hacks :-)

Oh, I would not say that. LinuxCNC comes with optimized touch GUIs ... but probably that's not what you are looking for. FVWM has bult in gestures that you could use (but I've never played with that feature).
