utility to list tablet devices


libwacom-list-local-devices [--database /path/to/datadir]


libwacom-list-local-devices is a debug utility to list connected tablet devices identified by libwacom. It is usually used to check whether a libwacom data file is correct, present and/or applies to a specific device.


--database /path/do/datadir

Sets the data directory path to be used. This is only useful when testing against a modified data path. Only libwacom developers need this option.


The Linux kernel provides separate /dev/input/event* nodes for the stylus, the pad and the touch part of the tablet. This usually results in a connected tablet being listed multiple times with this tool. This behavior is expected and should not be seen as a bug.
