    Summary: Input device event monitor and query tool
    The first invocation type displayed above ("capture mode") causes evtest to
    display information about the specified input device, including all the events
    supported by the device. It then monitors the device and displays all the
    events layer events generated.
    In the second invocation type ("query mode"), evtest performs a one-shot query
    of the state of a specific key *value* of an event *type*.
    *type* is one of: *EV_KEY*, *EV_SW*, *EV_SND*, *EV_LED* (or the numerical value)
    *value* can be either a decimal representation (e.g. 44), hex
    (e.g. 0x2c), or the constant name (e.g. KEY_Z) of the key/switch/sound/LED
    being queried.
    If the state bit is set (key pressed, switch on, ...), evtest exits with
    code 10. If the state bit is unset (key depressed, switch off, ...), evtest
    exits with code 0. No other output is generated.
    evtest needs to be able to read from the device; in most cases this means it
    must be run as root.
    evtest is commonly used to debug issues with input devices in X.Org. The
    output of evtest shows the information presented by the kernel; based on
    this information it can be determined whether a bug may be a kernel or an
    X.Org issue.
