It's not very clear.

You want to use Linux to turn the screen on, on an iPhone? You *just* want to turn the screen on, and nothing else?

I want full use and control, not just screen display
I'm not sure that that's possible. Maybe someone will know of a way. The iPhone is pretty locked down and proprietary.
This is probably the easiest option, I found other ways but it wasn't as easy as using this app.
Works with chrome browser on Linux too!
Using air beam tv on my iPad could write equations in real time using the Apple pencil on the iPad with the screen shared with an online zoom session running on Linux. (Zoom also works well on Linux using the Chrome browser)
