Needed to send some SMS with information I wanted to copy'n'paste from my #Librem14 desktop.
Switched on the #PiKVM to get remote access to my #Librem5 connected to it and found the PiKVM not starting. Disconnecting the hdmi-cable for a few seconds made it boot.
When connected to the PiKVM with a browser the KVM session shows an empty desktop, because top and bottom bars are still on the Librem5s display. To get access to them I connected via ssh and ran the following
wlr-randr --output DSI-1 --off
This disables the phones display and moves the top and bottom bar to the external display - the PiKVM sending it to my browser session.
To cut'n'paste I tested PiKVMs
- copy some text from the local desktop (in my example a simple text editor)
- open the
Text menu in the browser session showing PiKVMs web interface
- paste the text to the text boxed in the menu
- confirm that I really want to paste the text
- it's pasted to where the cursor is active on the remote computer - in my case the Librem5
Nice to know even though the same can be achieved through an ssh session to the Librem5 by running
echo "here I pasted whatever I wanted to have in my remote session from my desktop to the ssh session" | wl-copy
