I'm using synergy+ with Windows XP as a server and a CentOS client. The mouse speed on the client (Linux) seems really slow. Is there a way to have the mouse speed from the server persist to the clients?

I had this problem and I updated from from synergy to synergy+ and now the speed is very fast.

I did the same thing but forgot to come back and update this post. Thanks! – Ternary Nov 5 '10 at 19:39

Turn off mouse trails and pointer shadowing in the mouse options on the Windows computer.

I occasionally get the slow mouse problem with Synergy+. My setup is Windows 7 as the server and Snow Leopard as the client.

When this happens, I disable/disconnect the WiFi on the server and the mouse speed is back to normal.

Were you able to figure this issue out? I just reinstalled and am having these issues. I found that it was improved after activating my graphics drivers but still miserable.

I have a very similar set up, running Windows 7 (server) and Ubuntu 9.10 (client).

On my client machine I have installed Synergy and Synergy+ and configured my box to automatically run Synergy when the computer starts. There are suggested configurations. I have tried both.

Both configurations are found below, but they don't work for me.
