I am trying to achieve something similar to this: http://superuser.com/questions/67659/linux-share-keyboard-over-network
The difference is that I need the remote keyboard to be usable separate from my local keyboard. The method described in the link seems to pipe the events into an existing device file. I need the remote keyboard to show as a physical (slave) device when I run
Why do I need this? I am trying to play a two player game but I don't have an external USB keyboard, so I want to pipe the keypresses from the remote computer to a fake device (so I can assign one device per player).
