I have installed synergy v1.4.5 on my laptop and desktop. Both computers are running Ubuntu 11.10. Although the logs indicate synergy is connected and able communicate over my LAN, moving the mouse to the edge of the screen doesn't do anything magic. Is there further configuration that I'm missing?

Here is my /etc/synergy.conf file:

section: screens

section: aliases

section: links
left = wim-zenbook
right = wim-ubuntu

section: options
screenSaverSync = false
keystroke(f12) = lockCursorToScreen(toggle)

Here is the log from the client:

Running synergy: /usr/bin/synergyc -f --debug NOTE --name wim-zenbook

started client
connecting to '':

connected to server

Here is the log from the server:

Running synergy: /usr/bin/synergys -f --debug NOTE --name wim-ubuntu -c /etc/synergy.conf --address :24800

2012-02-02T23:34:04 NOTE: started server

2012-02-02T23:34:07 NOTE: accepted client connection

2012-02-02T23:34:07 NOTE: client "wim-zenbook" has connected

It is a known issue with gnome 3, and here is the bug report.

It is severity high so I think we can reasonably expect a fix in a future version.
