Synergy (Shared keyboard+Mouse) on Extras-Devel

Synergy lets you share a mouse and keyboard between several computers over a network. When two or more devices are in same network, one can act as server and it's keyboard and mouse can control another devices too. Just move mouse over screen and focus is switched.

Synergy lets you share a mouse and keyboard between several computers over a network.

When two or more devices are in same network, one can act as server and it's keyboard and mouse can control another devices too. Just move mouse over screen and focus is switched.

(This is version 1.3.6, which is same than current Ubuntu, 11.10, is using. Protocol version is 1.3)

USAGE:

*You must know hostname of your N900, it might be Nokia-N900. You can check it on terminal
Code:

hostname

*Install synergy to your computer (or any another device)

*On computer:
create/modify file ~/.synergy.conf (or /etc/synergy.conf)

Example:
Code:

section: screens
pc:
Nokia-N900:
end

section: links
pc:
right = Nokia-N900
Nokia-N900:
left = pc
end

section: options
screenSaverSync = false
# My KVM uses Scroll Lock to switch screens, so set the
# hotkey to lock the cursor to the screen to something else
keystroke(f12) = lockCursorToScreen(toggle)
end

On PC, start server
Code:

synergys -f

(-f means you will see what is happening, you can omit it when it works)

On phone, start client
Code:

synergyc SERVER_HOST_NAME

or
Code:

synergyc SERVER_IP

*Data is transmitter over network (and could be slow)
*Synergy client uses CPU (and battery) even focus is not even on the phone, do not let it running when not used.
(issues on upstream, e.g. http://synergy-foss.org/tracker/issues/2935)
-use
Code:

killall synergyc

to shut it down
*Moving mouse will not wake the screen when dimmed (as tapping touch screen doesn't wake it)
*What is the whole point of this? usb-host mode with usb-host and mouse+keyboard works too. (You tell me)
