Welcome to my new project: ReTouch. The main idea of this project is to use a Meego device as a remote keyboard/touchpad device to control a Linux desktop over wifi or bluetooh.
The client will just work on the Meego device (grabbing the gestures from a touch area and from a virtual keryboard) and send this information over a connection to the server part, who will be responsible to convert its input and perform these events on the machine.
The server is the more complicated side, as its need to receive the client input and convert to the system signals to emulate real keyboard/mouse events. For this, I’ve done some tests using Xlib, with successful results.
By now, I’m finishing the client’s interface and starting capturing the virtual keyboard events (the touch ones are working well), and finishing projecting the basic connection protocol (its demand some security governance too).
So, stay tuned to future updates 🙂
