libinput-analyze-per-slot-delta - analyze the per-event delta movement for touch slots
libinput analyze per-slot-delta [--help] [options] recording.yml
The libinput analyze per-slot-delta tool analyzes a recording made with libinput record and prints the delta movement per touch slot.
This is a debugging tool only, its output may change at any time. Do not rely on the output.
- Print help
- --ignore-below=<units or mm>
- Ignore any movement below the given threshold. The threshold is in mm if --use-mm is selected or in device units otherwise.
- --threshold=<units or mm>
- Color any movement above this threshold in red. The threshold is in mm if --use-mm is selected or in device units otherwise.
- Print data in mm instead of device units
- Use the single-touch ABS_X/ABS_Y instead of the multitouch axes
- Print absolute coordinates, not deltas
An example output for a single finger touch on a touchpad supporting two slots is below. This output is with the use of the --use-mm flag.
0.000000 +0ms TOU: ++++++ | ************* |
0.021900 +21ms TOU: →↘ +1.10/+0.14 | ************* |

The entry ++++++ indicates a finger has been put down, ------ indicates the finger has lifted. The left-most column is the absolute timestamp in seconds.microseconds followed by the relative time of the event to the previous event.
The word TOU in this example represents BTN_TOUCH, similar abbreviations exist for BTN_TOOL_DOUBLETAP, BTN_TOOL_TRIPLETAP, BTN_TOOL_QUADTAP, and BTN_TOOL_QUINTTAP.
The arrows indicate the approximate direction on a 16-point compass, in this example EastSouthEast.
Each multitouch slot supported by the hardware has one column, where the column shows asterisk ******** no finger is down for that slot. Where the column shows spaces only, a finger is down but no data is currently available.
In the above example, the third events occurs ~33ms into the recording, is 11ms after the previous event and has an east south-east direction. The movement for this event was x: 1.15 and y: 0.19 mm. A second finger is not currently down.
