    Question 2 computers, 1 keyboard and mouse

    Hi.

    I've just bought a raspberry pi. I've connect my raspberry pi and my desktop computer to 1 monitor by using a monitor switch. But does anyone know how I can do the same with my keyboard and mouse, so I can use the same mouse and keyboard for both computers?
    I use Xubuntu 12.04 on my desktop and wheezy on my raspberry.

    i would say you need a KVM switch.
    i can switch between 4 computers using one monitor/keyboard/mouse.
    Here is a link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KVM_switch

    Or you could use software such as Synergy, which is what I use here. Lets me move a mouse cursor across several screens, and to type on any of the systems.
