HI

I'm trying to run on RaspberryPI with OpenELEC 7.0 and a basic WebBrowser based on unofficial Qt5.6.2, QtWebkit 5.5.1 support. The Qt based web browser runs fine but i can't handle the mouse or keyboard in the browser because the /dev/input devices are holded by Kodi.
Is there any way to share the input devices between apps without using a X window manager?
I want run certains applications such as WebBrowser and PDF viewer, but don't wan't to close Kodi every time that use one of this apps. The idea is leave Kodi running in background, but not holding resources like input devices and back to Kodi after the apps finished.
Someone has any suggestion to make it?

Best regards
Millo
