Hi There, I have a MacBook Pro, an Windows machine, and a Linux box. the MacBook Pro has 2 external monitors attaching to it, the monitors layout is the Laptop screen in the bottom, and the 2 external monitors on top of the laptop screen, which form a " V " shape. The Windows machine has 1 monitor, which is located on the left side of Mac's Top monitors. The Linux box has 1 monitor, which is located on the right side of the Mac"s Top monitors. My question is how to tell Synergy this laptop? I know how to do it with 1 or 2 screens using by the MacBook Pro, but 3 screen with a "V" shape, then I need some help. Thanks, Alex

Let's try to edit the configuration file. 1. Save the configuration file. "File" -> "Save configuration as" . Then the configuration file are generated. 2. Open that file by a text editor. 3. Modify the section " section : links " as follows. This is an example. I supposed that the names of each screen are "mac", "windows", "linux". Change them. You can change numbers as you like. These are percentile of a length of an edge. [code] section: links mac: up(0,50) = windows up(50,100) = linux windows: down(50,100) = mac(0,50) right = linux linux: down(0,50) = mac(50,100) left = windows end [/code] 4. Save it. Remember the path of this file. 5. In the main panel of Synergy on the server machine, select "Use existing configuration : " and put the path of configuration file. 6. Restart synergy. You can find the complete guide : https://github.com/synergy/synergy/wiki ... nfig#links
