PROGRAM:

NAME


inputplug - XInput event monitor

SYNOPSIS


inputplug [-a address] [-f path] [-v] [-n] [-d] [-0] -c command-prefix

DESCRIPTION


inputplug is a daemon which connects to a running X server and monitors its XInput
hierarchy change events. Such events arrive when a device being attached or removed,
enabled or disabled etc.

When a hierarchy change happens, inputplug parses the event notification structure, and
calls the command specified by command-prefix. The command receives three arguments:

command-prefix event-type device-id device-type device-name

Event type may be one of the following:

· XIMasterAdded

· XIMasterRemoved

· XISlaveAdded

· XISlaveRemoved

· XISlaveAttached

· XISlaveDetached

· XIDeviceEnabled

· XIDeviceDisabled

Device type may be any of those:

· XIMasterPointer

· XIMasterKeyboard

· XISlavePointer

· XISlaveKeyboard

· XIFloatingSlave

Device identifier is an integer. Beware that the device name is likely to contain spaces.

Also, if compiled with libixp, inputplug can post events to the wmii event file. To
enable wmii support, the address of its 9P server needs to be specified.

OPTIONS


A summary of options is included below.

-v Be a bit more verbose.

-n Start up, monitor events, but don't actually run anything. With verbose more enabled,
would print the actual command it'd run. This implies -d.

-d Don't daemonize. Run in the foreground.

-0 On start, trigger added and enabled events for each plugged devices. A master device
will trigger the "added" event while a slave device will trigger both the "added" and
the "enabled" device.

-c command-prefix
Command prefix to run. Unfortunately, currently this is passed to execvp(3) directly,
so spaces aren't allowed. This is subject to change in future.

-a address
The address at which to connect to wmii. The address takes the form
<protocol>!<address>. If an empty string is passed, inputplug tries to find wmii
automatically.

-f path
Path to the event file within 9P filesystem served by wmii. The default is /event.

ENVIRONMENT


DISPLAY
X11 display to connect to.

WMII_ADDRESS
wmii address.
