dear #fediverse does anyone know a tool that allows multiple users to control a desktop computer simultaneously? And by that I mean full multiplayer desktop environment, multiple cursors etc.
Something like VNC but.. multiplayer
also looking for something #floss not a proprietary tech support software suite
@rra eh, give each user their own x instance? That's what the whole networking bits in x are for!
Don't ask me how to set it up exactly, though - I know it's a thing, but I've never done it myself. Manpages and/or the web should contain some info.
@doenietzomoeilijk I'd like multiple users use the same desktop simultaneously.
@rra ah, ok. Not sure if *that* is possible, especially with more than one mouse cursor.
@rra multiple cursor/focus would break so many things in the gui stack.
@astraluma thats why it would be so nice to try it
Why would you like to do so? What is the use case?
@jibec find more interesting ways of being together online than Zoom
