Simple Linux Client

    I would like a very simple linux client that can be configured from the command line and can output the keyboard and mouse commands to a file handle of our choice.

    My hope is to use a Raspberry PI Zero, configured as a USB HID Gadget, to send keystrokes and mouse movement to a remote computer. This computer is on a VPN, cannot use Bluetooth, and therefore cannot be a normal client for Across.

    Its fairly trivial to configure the PI Zero to act as an HID device (for example: https://randomnerdtutorials.com/raspberry-pi-zero-usb-keyboard-hid/). However I would need a way to receive the keystrokes and mouse movements from Across so I can then output them to the usb port.

    Because the linux client is a full xwindows application, and you cannot redirect the output, its not suitable for my needs. Is there a simple linux client that just connects to an across server and receives the key/mouse data? Is there any open source across client for linux? Would you consider creating such a client?
