Hi All,
I have a large monitor, and I would like to use my computer with my child.
My vision is for me and my child to have our own keyboards and mice. I
imagine working away on 'my side' of the screen, while they are working on
their side. Occasionally, I will 'reach across' and help them with what
they are working on.

As Niels already pointed out, multiseat is the word to look for here.
However, the most common documentation on multiseat you will find is for
separate sessions on the same host computer. The goal is to save on
hardware, not collaboration.

If you google for MPX or Multi-Pointer X, that provides what you need and
it's been supported in X since 2008 or so. Should be immediately available

Is there anything like MPX supported in gnome-shell's wayland session?
