Right.  In the scenario I outlined, you're basically using the Braille Lite
as a terminal for the Linux box.  You won't be able to use brltty
simultaneously, at least according to this thread from 2001:
I have to plead ignorance, because I've never owned a braille display,
although I wish I did.

To each their own.
Actually, minicom might be a good fit for you.  It isn't graphical, but it is
somewhat screen-oriented, too much so for me.  E.G., it has menus and
the like, from what I remember of it.
