       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 || --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

       --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 prop-
	       erty 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 reg-

       --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 pre-
	       fix. The server will create one master pointer named "prefix pointer" and one mas-
	       ter  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 float-
	       ing 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-output device crtc
	       Restricts the movements of the absolute device to the RandR crtc. The output  name
	       must  match  a  currently  connected  output (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.

       --enable device
	       Enable the device. This call is equivalent to  xinput  --set-prop  device  "Device
	       Enabled" 1

       --disable device
	       Disable	the  device.  This call is equivalent to xinput --set-prop device "Device
	       Enabled" 0

       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.
