I've just gotten a mac and the first thing I'm trying to do in setting it up for dev is to set-up synergy.
I've run into countless issues, and am making progress, but that 'mac's just work' theory is getting tired really fast.
I'd prefer running the mac as the server, as it's a desktop. why use my pc(laptop) as the server.
So i downloaded synergy, and tried to edit the 'synergy.conf' file. First with textmate, then with apple script. Neither of these applications will open the file. Even after changing textmate to use plain text format and switching off a few other things to make it into a plain text editor. No good. Uh, isn't that what these script/text editors are for?
Then I found SyneryKM which is a package to run synergy on osx. Took LOTS of fiddling, but I think I finally kinda got it figured out.
I've got my pc & mac both running synergy. However, my pc will only connect to synergy using the ip address. No problem, however, my mac won't connect to itself as a synergy server using the IP address. If I use the ip address as a screen in the 'server configuration file', i get a 'Error: unknown screen name
I know this shouldn't be super complicated, and possibly not the place to find answers about synergy, but I couldn't find a better place, and there has been some talk of synergy here.
Any chance somebody can help with this?
