libinput quirks --help


The libinput quirks tool interacts with libinput's quirks database.

When invoked as libinput quirks list, the tool lists all quirks applied to the given device.

When invoked as libinput quirks validate, the tool checks for parsing errors in the quirks files and fails if a parsing error is encountered.

This is a debugging tool only, its output and behavior may change at any time. Do not rely on the output.


--data-dir /path/to/dir

Use the given directory as data directory for quirks files. When omitted, the default directories are used.


Print help


Use verbose output, useful for debugging.
