I have a setup of 2 computers with 2 screens each both operating WinXP (1 desktop with display #1 1050x1680 and #2 1680x1050 and 1 laptop with #3 1920x1200 and #4 1280x1024). Synergy principally works as expected - I am using the desktop as server, laptop as client, synergy operates them as one big wall 1234 from left to right.
But - when I am working on screen #3 or #4 the mouse cursor is periodically (about every 10s) and without any interaction other than moving it jumping back to a specific position on #3. What I could find out so far:
Any ideas for a solution of the problem?
Another try: Making the laptop the server and the desktop the client (same display layout as above 1234) results in the same behaviour with the following difference
Remarkable: The y value seems to be half of the y-resolution of the primary display (being #1 and #3) of the clients screen setup. It does not jump on the primary display but on the one being 'closest to the last server display'
Maybe this gives additional hints for solving the issue
Sorry for boring you with that question. It was error 50 (Error 50 = reason for error is located 50cm away from the screen :-)
For some reason 2-3 years ago I created and auto-launched a script on both computers to simulate a Roll-key keypress every 10s (my measurement of time wasn't that bad at all). Once I removed this script the autopositioning stopped.
Thanks to all who may have invested thinking time ....
