I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit, however, Synergy only works when a window (application or folder) is open and touching the edge of the screen where the mouse should "jump".
In other words, if a window is open and maximized, Synergy works normally. Without any windows, the mouse does not jump to the other screen.
- (Ubuntu) apt-get install -y quicksynergy
- (Windows) Install Synergy (I've tried both 1.3.8 and 1.4.8 and both 32 and 64-bit)
On Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit (Synergy Server config):
~/.quicksynergy/synergy.conf section: screens myubuntu: mywin7: end section: links myubuntu: right = mywin7 mywin7: left = myubuntu end
On Ubuntu 11.10 32-bit:
$ /usr/bin/synergys -f --config .quicksynergy/synergy.conf ... 2012-04-25T14:04:12 NOTE: client "mywin7" has connected /build/buildd/synergy-1.3.6/lib/server/CServer.cpp,287 (output hangs here)
On Windows 7 64-bit:
Synergy 1.3.8 Client on Microsoft Windows 7 x86 (WOW64) started client connecting to 'myubuntu': ###.###.###.###:24800 connected to server (output hangs here)
At this point, things should work, but my mouse still can't change screens unless a window is maximized on my Ubuntu machine.
Everything is running on port 24800.
No firewall on Ubuntu. Firewall port 24800 open on Windows 7.
This was previously working on Ubuntu 10.10 and Windows 7 (so only Ubuntu has been upgraded).
I'm open to using either 32 or 64-bit on either server or client side, but I just want to get it working on Ubuntu 11.10 and Windows 7!
I'm also using Ubuntu Classic (no effects), and not Unity.
