ratbagctl - Man Page

inspect and modify configurable mice

Synopsis

ratbagctl [Options] {COMMAND} ... device

Description

The ratbagctl tool queries or changes a device's settings.

This tool usually needs ratbagd to be running.

Options

--version, -V

Show program's version number and exit.

--verbose, -v

Print debugging output. Multiple -v options increase the verbosity. For example, -vvv will show the protocol output.

--nocommit

Do not immediately write the settings to the mouse. This allows to set multiple parameters in a script, and the last call to ratbagctl will write them all.

--help, -h

Print the help.
