XSetDeviceMode - change the mode of a device
XSetDeviceMode(display, device, mode)
display Specifies the connection to the X server.
device Specifies the device whose mode is to be changed.

The XSetDeviceMode request changes the mode of an input device that is capable of report-
ing either absolute positional information or relative motion information. Not all input
devices are capable of reporting motion data, and not all are capable of changing modes
from Absolute to Relative.
XSetDeviceMode can generate a BadDevice or BadMode error.
BadDevice An invalid device was specified. The specified device does not exist or has
not been opened by this client via XOpenInputDevice. This error may also
occur if some other client has caused the specified device to become the X
keyboard or X pointer device via the XChangeKeyboardDevice or XChangePointer-
BadMatch This error may occur if an XSetDeviceMode request is made specifying a device
that has no valuators and reports no axes of motion.
BadMode An invalid mode was specified. This error will also be returned if the speci-
fied device is not capable of supporting the XSetDeviceMode request.
