Multi Monitor setup

18 posts in this topic

I have a 3 monitor setup(win10) to which I'd like to add my notebook(Linux Mint) via synergy.
My goal is to have either this:

or this:

synergy_goal_2.png.8168aa3f703c886e628e97eb2a2567cb.png

The problem I'm facing is I am only able to achieve this:

I have tried this: 

synergy_config.png.843bd4b71ad34e7dc7dbe6c7b75da53e.png

And after a while of googling I came to the conclusion that this:

section: screens
 Windows:
 Linux:
end
section: links
 Windows:
    up(0, 100) = Linux
 Linux:
    down = Windows(0, 100)
end

should achieve what I'm trying to do but obviously it doesn't.

 

Am I missing something obvious or can I just not use synergy as I hoped I could?

Is there really nobody who can help me?
I was looking forward to actually using this in my setup.

Hey @Paul Suarez thanks for the reply, unfortunately all those solutions result in the exact same situation I'm in anyways(image 3).

I even tried to just use this:

section: links
	TheBloodyIDE:
		down(0,100) = 2ndLutz(0,100)
	2ndLutz:
		up(0,100) = TheBloodyIDE(0,100)
end

in the hopes it would achieve image 2 but no luck.

Hi @TheBloodyScreen!

If you use this 

section: links
	TheBloodyIDE:
		down(0,100) = 2ndLutz(0,26)
	2ndLutz:
		up(0,26) = TheBloodyIDE(0,100)
end

Hopefully, you should have this...

Let me know how it goes.;)

Calculation:

1920 + 1920 + 1360 = 5200
S1 + S2 + S3 = the whole width of server's screen (WSS)
Since your client's monitor has 1360 pixels for it's width, you need to get what percent of the whole server screen from the left of it needs to be used as entry point and exit point for your mouse cursor.
1360 / 5200 = n x 100 = 26.1538
(C / WSS) x 100 =  % of WSS to be used as entry point

Using that I can't get to the client on any side of my monitors now.
It seems to me that only my third monitor "allows" the transfer at all.

Before I made this post I've also tried to make the transition on the left of S1 to the right of C but that also has some weird issues.
For example the cursor kept jumping to the center of S1 instead of going over to C.

Additionally, can you post a screenshot of your server's Synergy interface?

Which one of those server monitors is the main monitor?
