recommended DE with proper touch support?

| hey g/u/rls

do ya have any recommendations for desktop env. with touch support? currently from my limited testing gnome seems to be the only one.

kde's touch fails at multimonitor, spanning touch across all monitors as opposed to the touch monitor itself

| If you want touch, use GNOME

Which/distro especially version of KDE and GPU driver you use?
What graphics card you have?
For me everything runs fine with kde-neon on x64 laptop (touch display & intel gpu) and arm64 android (qualcom, via anlinux). On laptop it works even with additional (non-touch) display and extended desktop.

i have an intel gpu (uhd620)

| GNOME has been the best in my experience. Others are functional, such as KDE, but as you say, there are limitations.
GNOME (on the right distro) isn't too memory intensive either--I've seen 800MB at idle in Solus GNOME. Which is obviously not great compared to a window manager, but that doesn't seem to be what you're looking for. So in that case, I fully recommend GNOME.
