[ubuntu] Control 2 PCs with single mouse & keyboard

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I currently have two systems which ideally I would like to be able to work with from the one mouse and keyboard. As I have to keep an eye on my partners XP system I purchase a UK magazine and in their Q & A page they refer to Input Director where by loading the programme in both systems and designating a master system this can be done. However they then dash my hopes by stating that they don't support Linux systems. Is there anything similar available for Ubuntu ? (Hardware)
