Quick overview of my setup:

enter image description here

Where:

1: Raspberry Pi

2: 2nd Monitor for Windows 7 Laptop

3: Windows 7 Laptop

4: 2nd Monitor for Linux (Ubuntu) laptop

5: Linux Laptop

I would like to share my keyboard and mouse across all monitors.

I'm not overly concerned about the clipboard, however it would be a plus.

I do not want to spend any money.

Mouse is wired, to windows laptop (#3)

Thanks in advance.

    How's the mouse connected (USB/BT/…) and to which machine (I guess #3 is it)? Not that I know a software solution, but this might be a criterium. – Izzy Sep 4 '15 at 8:51

    Which OS is the Raspberry Pi running, Raspbian? – Tymric Sep 12 '15 at 22:51

Synergy

Synergy splash

Synergy allows to share a keyboard and mouse across several computers. Basically, you install it on all your computers.

The one with the mouse and keyboard is the server, everything else is a client. You can configure the screen disposition and pass the mouse from a screen to the other by going over the edge.

Configuration

Requirements

  • Share keyboard and mouse: Yes
  • Clipboard: Yes
  • Free: It was, in the far past. Today, for a single user, it's $10 for a lifetime license
  • Multi-monitor: Yes, but can be a pain depending on the disposition. Yours should work fine. (You configure a computer in the server view, not a single screen)
  • Compatibility:
    • Windows: Yes
    • Ubuntu: Yes
    • Raspberry: Unsure
