Multi Monitor Support

6 posts in this topic

I was wondering if Synergy 2.0 plans to have client monitors themselves be moved around instead of the entire machine. I have my Windows inbetween two Linux horizontal monitors and I have to drag across the two monitors at the sides to get to the middle. Will this be planned or is this just a pipe dream? I have tried configs but nothing works just as I want.

It's been kicked around on this forum. If it comes, I wouldn't expect it until Synergy 2.0 is viable and starts getting updates...Synergy 2.1 or .2...

But it would make a great feature upgrade/update! I would jump on it in a minute!

Have you tried stacking your Win screen atop adjacent Linux monitors? as a workaround?

I have linked a picture of my setup but yea that isn't really an option and its not optimal to my workflow. I am using GPU Passthrough to allow me to play games and run Linux as my native system. Synergy has helped very much with this setup and the way I have it I just take my mouse and throw it to the right but I would prefer having a more natural way of moving from each monitor instead of just LINUX LINUX WINDOWS.

I dont think this is there yet. take a look at the unofficial roadmap and see if you find anything useful.

We do want to implement this feature, but it probably won't be until 2.2 (mid next year).

Thank you for the response, I really enjoy the software and hopefully that feature is added. Having it flow like a normal desktop would make the argument for GPU Passthrough a lot more easier.
