       xinput - utility to configure and test X input devices


       xinput [OPTIONS] [DEVICE]


       xinput  is a utility to list available input devices, query information
       about a device and change input device settings.


               Test if the X Input  extension  is  available  and  return  the
               version  number of the program and the version supported by the
               server. This option does not require a device name.

       --list [--short || --long] [device]
               If no argument is given list  all  the  input  devices.  If  an
               argument  is  given,  show  all  the  features  of device. Uses
               XListInputDevices(3).   If  --long  is  provided,  the   output
               includes  detailed  information  about the capabilities of each
               devices. Otherwise, or if --short is provided, only the  device
               names and some minimal information is listed.

       --get-feedbacks device
               Display the feedbacks of device.

       --set-pointer device
               Switch  device  in core pointer.  This option does nothing on X
               servers 1.5 and later.

       --set-mode device ABSOLUTE|RELATIVE
               Change the mode of device.

       --set-ptr-feedback device threshold num denom
               Change the acceleration of device.

       --set-integer-feedback device index value
               Change the value of an integer feedback of device.

       --set-button-map device map_button_1 [map_button_2 [...]]
               Change the button mapping of device. The buttons are  specified
               in  physical  order  (starting with button 1) and are mapped to
               the logical button provided. 0 disables a button.  The  default
               button mapping for a device is 1 2 3 4 5 6 etc.

       --query-state device
               Query the device state.

       --list-props device [device [...]]
               Lists properties that can be set for the given device(s).

       --set-int-prop device property format value
               Sets  an  integer  property for the device.  Appropriate values
               for format are  8,  16,  or  32,  depending  on  the  property.
               Deprecated, use --set-prop instead.

       --set-float-prop device property value
               Sets  a  float  property for the device. Deprecated, use --set-
               prop instead.

       --set-prop [--type=atom|float|int] [--format=8|16|32]  device  property
       value [...]
               Set the property to the given value(s).  If not specified,  the
               format  and type of the property are left as-is.  The arguments
               are interpreted according to the property type.

       --watch-props device
               Prints to standard out when property changes occur.

       --delete-prop device property
               Delete the property from the device.

       --test [-proximity] device
               Register all extended events from device and enter  an  endless
               loop  displaying  events  received. If the -proximity is given,
               ProximityIn and ProximityOut are registered.

               Register for a number of XI2  events  and  display  them.  This
               option does not take a device argument.

       device can be the device name as a string or the XID of the device.

       property can be the property as a string or the Atom value.
