Livepoint allows the user to slide the mouse "off" the screen and control the mouse and keyboard of a remote screen. It has a similar purpose to PointRight, but integrates with the Livespace infrastructure so that it is centrally deployed as a Livespace service, takes screen forwarding into account and supports multiple rooms.
Livepoint's core is based on the the open source Synergy utility.
Livepoint is nearing "1.0" release stage. It still requires screen forwarding awareness and a few bug fixes.
The hook library that receives keyboard and mouse events occasionally gets locked by another process, stopping it being replaced when OSGi is restarted. This is a serious problem because it stops the entire Livespace OSGi service from starting meaning the host loses all services and applications. Since this appears to be some kind of problem with Window's support for input hooks we currently don't know how to approach this.
The interim solution, which has been added in the latest version of the Livespace Client, is to have the launcher automatically remove the old
work/fwdir directory before restarting.
