I figured out how to put two pointers at the same time and control them with two mice (using xinput), but can I have them both assigned to a window? Since I can only have one window in focus I can't use both of the pointers properly because one will be on the focused window and the other one won't. I'm trying to play a LAN game with a friend and, if this is possible, we'll be able to play in split-screen. I have a second monitor available, but if possible I'd prefer it on one screen. I'm also trying to avoid emulation since I have an older PC with Ubuntu. I'm new to Linux so it would be nice if you could explain every step.

    I can't use both of the pointers properly ... this is the same as it's not working... the statement does not contains any useful information ... please describe what you expect to happen and what you observed as happening – jsotola Jun 29 '19 at 21:07

    @jsotola your comment is redundant; it's pretty obvious that the OP wants to also use multiple keyboards each with its window in focus, kind of like it's described here. Unfortunately, I'm not able to test it now. – mosvy Jul 7 '19 at 14:55
