I've just installed Synergy on my MacBook Pro (10.7) as server and on a Windows 7 PC as client.
It appears that the trackpad gestures and scrolling (e.g. four finger swipes, and two finger scrolling) are disabled after connecting.
Is there a way to retain this functionality on the Mac side and still allow a Synergy connection to the Windows machine?
My temporary workaround is to use BetterTouchTool on the Lion server. I already had BTT installed to re-enable some gestures from Snow Leopard that I wanted in Lion so I just configured BTT to have a two-finger swipe up to be page down (yes, I like the new natural scrolling) and a two-finger swipe down to be page up. This is not perfect at all because it doesn't scroll as you move your fingers. You have to swipe and pull your fingers off the trackpad for it to be registered as a swipe up event. But at least I can page up and down for now.
