If you're using Linux, install Synergy as:
$ sudo apt-get install synergy
If you're using your Linux box as the server, create a
.synergy.conffile and save it somewhere in your home folder. Your file should contain (at least) the following:
right = CPCclient
left = CPCserver
CPCserveris the hostname of the server and
CPCclientis the hostname of the client. In this example, the server is to the right of the client.
Once the server is set up, you need to start it. If you do not want to start it each time you log in, simply add
synergydto your startup applications. Make sure you start it as
/usr/bin/synergys -f --config /path_to_file/.synergy.confso that it knows where to search for the configuration file.
