How to use clients mouse and keyboard not the server one?

2 posts in this topic

Hi all, 

Is it possible to use as peripheral devices (keyboard and mouse) from the client side?

Here is the situation:

Server: no keyboard no mouse

client: laptop (has mouse and keyboard)

In order to use my laptop mouse and keyboard, I have to make the laptop server, then on the pc to connect mouse and keyboard start synergy on the pc as a client and then to connect to the server which is the laptop, and then I can detach from the pc mouse and the keyboard. It's annoying to do this really. :)

 

Both machines runs with Fedora 28

I handle this by using a wireless keyboard and mouse and just moving the receiver over temporarily. Your other choice is keeping a small keyboard and mouse plugged into the PC all the time.
