I'm using Synergy server on my Ubuntu machine and using a Windows 7 machine as client. On my Ubuntu machine I have mapped so that pressing the Pause button switches between US and Swedish keyboard layouts. However, when mouse/keyboard is on the Windows machine, pressing Pause has no effect. Is there a way to instruct Synergy on the Windows client to pass through the proper hotkey to the server?
You can switch keyboard layout in windows 7, install the new layout (I don t remember how to right now), and in the toolbar you can configure multiple layout.
In the toolbar, you have a "language" tool, just look in the parameters. I have French and English UK side by side, note that it will (in some software) also change the language detection).
You can assign hotkeys in the parameters for each languages.
