Change the mode of device_name. Uses XSetDeviceMode(3).

xinput set-ptr-feedback device_name threshold num denom
Change the acceleration of device_name. Uses XChangeFeedbackControl(3).

xinput set-integer-feedback device_name index value
Change the value of an integer feedback of device_name. Uses XChangeFeedbackControl(3).

xinput set-button-map device_name map button 1 [map button 2 [...]]
Change the button mapping of device_name. Uses XSetDeviceButtonMapping(3).

xinput query-state device_name
Query the device state. Uses XQueryDeviceState(3).

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

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

xinput set-float-prop device_name property value
