[Bug 977637] Re: Block user local input while remote assist is active


x11vnc -grabkbd -grabptr can be used for that, in /usr/share/epoptes

get_assisted() {
    background x11vnc -noshm -24to32 -grabkbd -grabptr -connect_or_exit "$SERVER:$1"

But it won't be committed upstream now, because we want to refrain from
adding new features to epoptes for a few months, and only handle bug
fixes, in order to make Precise backports easier.

  available in TeamViewer.
