Lan Mouse is a free and open source software solution that enables users to control multiple computers with a single mouse and keyboard, similar to Universal Control on Apple devices. It functions as a software KVM switch, allowing seamless control of multiple PCs from a single peripherals set.
The software is designed primarily for Wayland-based Linux systems, providing seamless mouse and keyboard sharing between multiple Linux desktops. However, Lan Mouse also offers partial support for Windows, macOS, and Linux running on Xorg, making it a cross-platform solution.
