This one seemed to be quite trivial per official blog, but the whole pipeline gets a bit more complicated once the SSL enters into the game. Here is how I made it work with synergy and Ubuntu 14.04
- Configure the server and the client with the GUI application
- Make sure SSL server certificate fingerprint was stored in the
sudo -su myself /usr/bin/synergyc -f --enable-crypto my.server.ip.address
- After that check everything was working with sudo
/usr/bin/synergyc -d DEBUG2 -f --enable-crypto my.server.ip.address
- Finally add the
greeter-setup-script=sudo /usr/bin/synergyc --enable-crypto my.server.ip.addressline into the
/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conffile under the
Why you shouldn’t do it?
Despite the convenience, there seemed to be a bit or an interference for the keyboard command and command interpretation on my side, so since my two computers side by side and since I have an usb button switch from before I got synergy, I’ve decided to manually start synergy every time I log in.
