Synergy2 – cross platform screen, keyboard and mouse sharing

Filed under: gadgets,open source,software,tech — vagus @ 5:07 pm

Today I tried out this fun software called Synergy which is open source (GPL) and cross platform. It’s for virtual screen, keyboard and mouse sharing.

See the Synergy2 SourceForge webpage for more information about it.

It took about 15 minutes to download, install, configure and run on three devices, a Windows XP desktop as the “server” (called blackbird) placed on the left side, a tablet PC with openSUSE Linux (called silverbird) placed in the middle and an Ubuntu laptop (called vaiobird) on the right. I believe it works with Windows Vista as well. Real nifty and a cool toy to play with! :)

I just had to manually add the positioning information to the config file’s links section as follows:

section: links
blackbird:
right = silverbird
silverbird:
left = blackbird
right = vaiobird
vaiobird:
left = silverbird

Hardware And Software Bonanza Coming Up

Filed under: computers,gadgets,linux,open source,windows vista,wishlist — vagus @ 10:08 am

A bunch of new GNU/Linux distributions’ releases are coming up and will coincide with my plans to buy a new desktop and a new tablet PC for home use.

OpenSuse 10.3 is coming October 4th, Ubuntu 7.10 (codename: Gutsy Gibbon) is coming October 18th and Fedora 8 is coming November 8th. I plan to install and play with each one and decide on which distro to settle. My current preference is Ubuntu even though I like KDE better than GNOME. I’m currently running Ubuntu “Gutsy” Beta on my home desktop and “Feisty Fawn” (Ubuntu 7.04) on my work desktop and am very impressed with things.
