I am running Ubuntu on my notebook and Lineage OS without PlayServices on my phone.

Now I would like to use my Laptop keyboard as a remote keyboard for my phone, how could I achieve that? I guess, the phone is already ready for external bluetooth keyboards, how can I turn my Ubuntu notebook into a external keyboard?

Although its is unclear if anyone has made it work on more recent versions of Ubuntu.
