KeyBoard/Mouse Focus Project
This serial port based box controls the I/O of both keyboard and (serial)
mouse ports of up to seven computers. This allows one to setup a pseudo-
multiheaded X environment. I have built an X client that consists of a small
circle associated with a particular setting of the hardware. I have three
monitors side by side, each running X on a different machine. This X client
is run on each screen, one on each side of the center screen. Moving
the cursor into the circle causes the keyboard/mouse
to be instantly connected to the target computer. I move from one computer
to the next by merely sweeping the cursor across the screen 'thru' the circle.
I have converted xcutbuf to allow cut and paste between the screens.
Emacs 19.29.1 has a feature allowing edit frames to be started on
different X servers, so you can also spread a multi-file edit session around
all the screens.
