Jitouch has apparently been worked on since October 18th, 2014 for Yosemite compatibility, but as of writing this post it’s still broken.
This sucks, because it’s one of the core apps that makes OS X usable for me. I don’t want to sound melodramatic, but using Yosemite has been a daily struggle without all of my Jitouch muscle-memory UX goodness.

System Preferences, right click
Jitouch, and select “Remove Jitouch Preference Pane”:
Next, download the Yosemite beta. Instead of double clicking to install it, you need to manually move it to
/System/Library/PreferencePanes. This folder is hidden by default, but you can open it by selecting
Go -> Go to Folder in Finder:
/System/Library/PreferencePanes and hit

Jitouch.prefPane you downloaded before into this window:
Jitouch will now show up in
System Preferences -> Security and Privacy, which will re-enable a lot of the broken gestures (like drawing characters).
