Virtual Braille terminal? Brltty and lightdm


I packaged a recent version of lightdm and lightdm-gtk-greeter from
upstream, with a few (ugly) screen reading fixes.  I don't have a
Braille terminal available to test, but a person using one reported
problems with respect to the accessibility of the lightdm session versus
the user session.

In particular I would like to have a "virtual" Braille device, just to
be able to check whether the device responds or not.  I suspect a
workaround would consist in killing some brltty process right before the
lightdm greeter dies, so that the process presence doesn't lock the

Would you happen to have any tips for further investigation?
