Hi Frank!  Sorry, don't know much about eye tracking gear.  It might be
esoteric enough that Windows is your only (easy) bet.  Of course, you
can hopefully still run Linux on top of Windows in a VM or WSL or
something, with Windows host handling the accessible input and passing
it through to Linux.  The virtual-heavy guys here can probably say
definitively if that would work or not.
