	   capable of changing modes from Absolute to Relative.

		  does not exist or has	not been opened	by this	client via
		  XOpenInputDevice. This error may also	occur if some
		  other	client has caused the specified	device to become
		  the X	keyboard or X pointer device via the
		  XChangeKeyboardDevice	or XChangePointerDevice	requests.

	   BadMatch
		  This error may occur if an XSetDeviceMode request is
		  made specifying a device that	has no valuators and
		  reports no axes of motion.

	   BadMode
		  An invalid mode was specified. This error will also be
		  returned if the specified device is not capable of
		  supporting the XSetDeviceMode	request.
