deskconn is a daemon for the Linux desktop that allows remote control of some of the features of a Linux desktop.
That includes Screen locking, screen brightness control (on laptops), mouse cursor and keyboard input from a mobile phone (over WAMP proto using Crossbar).
All the above features are covered by either
desktop interfaces except for brightness control, which requires
display-control and was conceived by conversation here (thanks Jamie).
It would make
deskconn seamless for users installing it, so please allow that interface to auto-connect with it.
