Got a macbook pro w/ external 52 inch tv (abt 2000x1000px) on the motor output jack going through a ->svga adapter to the tv's pc input. Also have a ubuntu server and a MacMini as clients.
my physical arrangement is:
[MiniMac]<>[ TV top . . ]
[Laptop] <> [ Tv bottom ] <> [ubuntu]
TV is my mac's primary display (menubar) I can describe working arrangments that are close to true physical, but none that truly represent the physical setup, so mouse leaves/enters where I would not like. To do what I want, I think I need to describe the mac's 2 displays separately in the synergy conf file. I have found help online for multiple x displays: http://www.gentoo.org/news/en/gwn/20070910-newsletter.xml but I dont have different windows to enter separate client commands in. I've tried searching for help, but becasue synergy is all about 'multiple' displays, monitors, or screens adding "one one machine" doesnt help filter the results.... Ideas?
Also, when using (percent,percent) on my laptops conf display settings, the 0-100 only seem to apply to my tv display. I cant descibe a way at all for anyhting to be up from the laptop's lcd. up or up(anything) sends the mouse to the up only from the tv, the laptop lcd never can get anything to be up from it... though, if i put laptop's lcd as being down from minimac, then moving down on minimac does land the cursor on the laptop lcd.....
Not too relevant, but in case it helps others or helps someone help me, my conf file contents is as follows. It works fine, as in I can get to all displays, but just not to/from the edges I'd like.
section: screens Laptop: LivingRoom: CovoMac: end
section: aliases Laptop: louiss-macbook-pro-2.local CovoMac: MacMinis-Mac-mini.local end
section: links Laptop: right = LivingRoom up(65,75) = CovoMac LivingRoom: left = Laptop CovoMac: right = Laptop down = Laptop end
section: options switchCorners = none screenSaverSync = false end
It is not possible to split screens up with Synergy.
