Synergy – A real bad ass

I love having a KVM but cords are expensive and sometimes I just want to control my Linux laptop. Since I have two monitors on my Desk, how cool would it be if I could control the laptop with my desktop keyboard and mouse. Well this is where Synergy comes into play.

imageSynergy is a virtual KVM. Its as easy as moving your mouse to the far side of your screen to control another PC with your same keyboard and mouse!

Just start a server, click Configure.

image Add your two, three, or 50 PCs and tell Synergy where in space your monitors are relatively.

Start the Server and connect with your client. If your Client is Linux, just install synergy.

For Ubuntu

apt-get install synergy

synergyc <Server IP>

synergyc is the client and synergys is the server. Now you can control multiple Laptops and Desktops with one single Keyboard and Mouse, over IP. By the way it works great on Wireless.
