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. 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
Display the feedbacks of 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 pointer acceleration (or feedback) parameters of
device. The xset(1) man page has more details. For X.Org
Server 1.7 and above, there are additional device properties
pertaining to pointer acceleration. These do not replace, but
complement the pointer feedback setting.
--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 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-
--set-prop [--type=atom|float|int] [--format=8|16|32] device property
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.
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.
--create-master prefix [sendCore] [enable]
Create a new pair of master devices on an XI2-enabled server
with the given prefix. The server will create one master
pointer named "prefix pointer" and one master keyboard named
"prefix keyboard". If sendCore is 1, this pair of master
devices is set to send core events (default). If enable is 1,
this master device pair will be enabled immediately (default).
--remove-master master [Floating|AttachToMaster] [returnPointer]
Remove master and its paired master device. Attached slave
devices are set floating if Floating is specified or the
argument is omitted. If the second argument is AttachToMaster,
returnPointer specifies the master pointer to attach all slave
pointers to and returnKeyboard specifies the master keyboard to
attach all slave keyboards to.
--reattach slave master
Reattach slave to master.
Remove slave from its current master device.
--set-cp window master
Set the ClientPointer for the client owning window to master.
master must specify a master pointer.
device can be the device name as a string or the XID of the device.
slave can be the device name as a string or the XID of a slave device.
master can be the device name as a string or the XID of a master
property can be the property as a string or the Atom value.
