Default Synergy - 11-15-2008, 09:11 PM

Anybody else here discovered synergy ?

It effectively allows you to use a mouse + keyboard over 2 computers, and seemlessy move the mouse off the side of one monitor and onto another! I use it will my Dell mini at work and its ideal, allows me to fiddle with my mini without it being 1000% obvious

For those of you curious,: http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/

I'll be writing a guide very soon.

Been using it for years. I currently have it running on my Mac (server) and Ubuntu Intrepid on the Mini9 (client). Works great. Besides sharing the mouse and the keyboard it also allows sharing of the clipboard.

Synergy works great with my 4 monitor setup Desktop1--Desktop2--Laptop1, Above Desktop 2 is Desktop 3 for a 3rd computer. When my Mini 9 gets here, it will go to the left of Desktop 1

Thanks for the pointer, I'm using it at work for a "third" screen (my PC has dual monitors), and it works great!

Has anyone tried Synergy with Ubuntu inside Mini 9?

It doesn't work well, sometimes it "hangs" waiting for something and then it responds smoothly for 2-5 seconds and stops again.

I've it working with my other two Fedora and Ubuntu laptops without this problem so I think its something related with the preloaded Ubuntu.
