I have an idea to use my eeePC as a remote control for my raspberry Pi plugged into my tv. So basically my eeePC would serve as a wireless mouse and keyboard instead of buying a wireless mouse and keyboard.

Could someone suggest what parts of Linux I should research to start playing with this idea? Mouse and keyboard drivers perhaps?

Might be simpler to just use a terminal app.

Enjoy the Choice Smile

I've never heard of VNC, looks like a promising solution thanks Smile

Take it you haven't read lxf 160 yet, it details setting up vnc.
