I've got a simple xserver setup: Ubuntu workstation running xserver, to which a remote Beaglebone computer running linuxcnc is connecting. So I'm using the mouse, keyboard and screen of the workstation to control the linuxcnc application.
The machines are physically standing next to eachother, but I find that the controls of linuxcnc are a bit laggy...
Therefore, I wonder if it is possible to attach a mouse and keyboard to the Beaglebone directly, and only use the screen of the workstation to display the application. It would look like this (adapted from the basic schema on Wikipedia):
I didn't find any description of this, so I guess it's not possible? I don't know really how xserver internals work, but I can imagine that the mouse needs information about the screen to send relative position events... For the keyboard I can't imagine what the problem could be, somehow I should be able to forward the keystrokes from the remote keyboard to the application, no?
