Conf Synergy

See other configs. More details are in the Synergy configuration guide.

In this example, ubuntu is the server which is positioned directly to the right of the client freedom. The mouse pointer on ubuntu will wrap the left edge of the screen onto the right edge of freedom, and from the right edge of freedom to the left edge of ubuntu with a small 50msec delay.

  • synergy.conf – on the server side only
    • server(ubuntu)$ synergys -f –config synergy.conf
      • starts synergy server in the foreground (-f) to see all messages
    • client(freedom)$ synergyc -f server-host-name
      • starts the synergy client in the foreground (-f) to see all messages
  • edit /etc/hosts so that screen names are resolvable hostnames
    • note: screen host names need to be defined for both server and clients

synergy.conf

Resident only on the server, ubuntu in this case.
