Oh BOTHER!

I've been fiddling around for a couple of months, unplugging my single PS/2 keyboard from one box and plugging it into the other, repeatedly.... and I already KNEW this software existed.

So, it's 12 minutes later, given that the s/w was already in the Ubuntu repository, and I'm happily moving my mouse from screen to screen, with the keyboard accompanying it.

I'm assuming the software is smart enough that, when I power down the other machine, it will revert the keyboard and mouse to this one.

Thanks for the reminder.... but where were you, two months ago?

Would you believe that I was out buying myself a KVM switch? And I still have to unplug/replug the mouse each time I start up.
