NAME

       xinput - utility to configure and test X input devices

SYNOPSIS

       xinput [OPTIONS] [DEVICE]

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

       --version
               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 || --name-only || --id-only] [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
               listed.   If  --name-only is provided, the output is limited to
               the device names. One device name is listed per line. Note that
               the order the devices are listed is undefined.  If --id-only is
               provided, the output is limited to the device IDs.  One  device
               ID  is  listed  per  line.  Note that the order the devices are
               listed is undefined.

       --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  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-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.

       --test-xi2 [device]
               Register for a number of XI2 events  and  display  them.  If  a
               device is given, only events on this device are displayed.

       --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]
       [returnKeyboard]
               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.

       --float slave
               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.

       --map-to-crtc device crtc
               Restricts  the  movements  of  the absolute device to the RandR
               crtc. The CRTC name must match a currently connected CRTC  (see
               xrandr(1)).  If  the  NVIDIA binary driver is detected or RandR
               1.2 or later  is  not  available,  a  Xinerama  output  may  be
               specified as "HEAD-N", with N being the Xinerama screen number.
               This option has no effect on relative devices.

       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
       device.

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