I have two fedora systems (running synergy 1.3.7) each with two displays. The synergy server has two displays arranged horizontally and the client has two displays arranged vertically.

monitor layout

When I go from the server to the client the mouse goes from DVI-I-2 -> HDMI2. I have used xrandr to define VGA1 as the primary of the system but it does not seem to honor it. Additionally, when I try to mouse down from HDMI2 -> VGA1 the cursor seems to stop just past the "seam" between the two displays.

My end goal is to be able to mouse from DVI-I-2 -> VGA1 and from VGA1 -> HDMI2 and then from HDMI-2 or VGA-1 back to DVI-I-2.

NOTE: The "native" mouse works correctly between VGA1 and HDMI2. It only sticks at the "seam" when using the mouse from the synergy server

To configure the client I used the following xrandr command

xrandr --output VGA1 --auto --primary --output HDMI2 --auto --above VGA1

My current synergy.conf

I have tried with the most recent build of synergy (1.4.8) and it still fails the same way. – Patrick Connelly Apr 16 '12 at 23:48

The issue came with the fact that I needed to restart the synergy client after running the xrandr command. I'm assuming that synergy still thinks that the screen resolution is the old size.
