I have my synergy server running on Fedora 15, I'm starting it with "Synergy" in .bash_profile. There's another Fedora 15 client. Sharing normally works fine, given that a window is not maximized.

I've not had this issue with Synergy running on Fedora 14, Windows 7, or Windows XP.

Note: Sharing works fine with Firefox, whether it is maximized or not.

As root

Edit your GDM Init file - This runs at machine boot.

vi /etc/gdm/Init/Default

On the client machine add the following line near the end of the file before the line with exit.

/usr/bin/synergyc -n {ClientName} {ServerName}

Replace ClientName with the machine name being installed on. Replace Server Name with the name (or IP) of the machine with the keyboard plugged in.

On the server machine:

Launch synergy, configure the screen geometry as desired. Save the configuration file. Move the configuration file to /etc/synergy.conf. Make sure file is owned by root

chown 0:0 /etc/synergy.conf

Edit your GDM Init file - This runs at machine boot.

vi /etc/gdm/Init/Default

add the following line near the end of the file before the line with exit.

/usr/bin/synergys

If you change clients or screen configuration, repeat the save and file move for synergy.conf
