I am using 2 computers. One with a single monitor, one with dual. The single monitor sits between the duals (The duals are large TVs on opposite sides of the space)

I would like to use Synergy to split the dual in half so that the mouse flows Dual-Left -> Single -> Dual-Right.

I tried:

section: screens
        single:
        dual: 
end 
section: links
         single:
                 right = dual(50,100)
                 left = dual(0,50)
         dual:
                 left = single(50,100)
                 right = single(0,100) 
end

I know this has issue, esp. the links dual part as it doesn't know how to leave/enter half way across the monitor space.

Am I asking too much of the program?

Thanks!

Sorry, I believe this is not possible. Though we intend to support this in version 2.

If there's a road-map I'll be patient.

You've got a definite beta tester right here! :)

Thanks!

I have a more or less the same situation but slightly different

At workplace1

Laptop Screen | Laptop Extended Screen | Desktop Screen

Desktop screen is the server and running windows xp. Laptop is running ubuntu 10.10.

At workplace2

Laptop Extended Screen | Laptop Screen | Desktop Screen

It is the same laptop which is the server and running ubuntu 10.10. Desktop is also running ubuntu 10.10 and will be client

how can i setup these screens?

any help is highly appreciated, you can also add me to your beta tester if you need to test this kind of config in the version 2.

I got it. You have to save the configuration then edit it.

  1. Put your two computers in the picture diagram via "Configure interactively"
  2. Back at the main screen, select File > Save Configuration As
  3. Name it anything you want and save as .sgc file
  4. Open the file in notepad to edit
  5. Find the Section: links and edit as follows:

    section: links

    Single:

    right = Dual
    
    left = Dual
    

    Dual:

    right = Single
    
    left = Single
    

    end

  6. Save and close

  7. Back in Synergy choose "Use existing configuration" and point it to your .sgc file

Nice! This works perfectly with my 10.7 mac in the middle, my macbook 10.6 on the right and the secondary screen for my Macbook on the left.

(26 Nov '11, 05:46) David

This worked for me as well. My Mac is the Single server in the middle and my Windows displays are on the sides (this kind of setup makes great sense in the web development field). When you first run these settings, when you move your mouse to the next display, it may enter the expected side of the wrong display. You could physically swap the displays. I got Ultramon on Windows so I can create profiles for rapidly switching between normal and a reversed display arrangement.

Just wanted to share my config to assist others:

I have 3 computers and 8 Monitors. They're set up in the following configuration:

__________________________________________________________
|             |             |             |              |
|      DCOGRAPHICS    -          4 Monitors Across       |
|                                                        |
|             |             |             |              |
---------------------------------------------------------
__________________________________________________________
|             |             |             |              |
|           Hornet          |            Wasp            |
|         2 monitors        |         2 Monitors         |
|             |             |             |              |
---------------------------------------------------------

Synergy treats each computer's combined screens as 100%.. therefore 0-50% of dcographics going down is 100% of hornet and 51-100% of dcographics going down is 100% of WASP. Going UP from Hornet and Wasp is exactly the same. Going Left and Right between Hornet and Wasp is nothing special.

One thing to note! When customizing your config it's really important to get the formatting correct or Synergy will read it improperly. I typically copy and paste a line that Synergy saved to the next line in the section and modify it to my needs.

section: screens
dcographics:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none 
    switchCornerSize = 0
HORNET:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none 
    switchCornerSize = 0
WASP:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none 
    switchCornerSize = 0
end

section: aliases
end

section: links
dcographics:
    down(0,50) = HORNET
    down(51,100) = WASP
HORNET:
    up = dcographics(0,50)
    right = WASP
WASP:
    left = HORNET
    up = dcographics(51,100)
end

section: options
relativeMouseMoves = false
screenSaverSync = true
win32KeepForeground = true
switchCorners = none 
switchCornerSize = 0
end

+1, excellent example!

(19 Nov '12, 05:48) David

I've been trying to accomplish the same thing. I eventually got what I wanted but it's not a perfect solution.

Here's how I did it. Since the absolute left is a hard wall and the absolute right is too, physically swap your left and right displays (and adjust your configs accordingly).
<- Dual-Right | Single | Dual-Left ->

However, it takes some getting used to when you want to move anything from one of the duals to the other. Same problem occurs with a super-wide program like a wide workbook in excel. It's totally annoying to have to track all the way left to see the right side of the document. Oh, ya, and gaming on the system is out too.

I just wanted to add to this because I have 4 screens total and I've edited it to have my mouse travel in circles now. 2 are my main PC then I have a laptop to the right and the dual monitor from the laptop to the left

section: links

Design-PC:
    right = PERSONAL-PC
    left = PERSONAL-PC
PERSONAL-PC:
    left = Design-PC
    right= Design-PC

here is my setup, DESKTOP_1 has dual monitors. my problem is that i want linux-0s75.site to be below Desktop_1 (screen one) and linux-zs6p.site to be below Desktop_1 (screen two). Also I want to wrap around linux-zs6p.site to androidphone and reverse from that. one more thing, is there a way to configre that if i do not have one of the systems up, will synergy detect that and wrap to the next in line instead of just failing to switch between screens? thank you in advance for any input that is given!!

Just worked this out, works perfect! The different laptops get to their other screen also on their dead sides (win-laptops right goes to its vga screen and linux-laptops right goes to its vga screen).

Physical layout:

 linux-laptop(server) lvds(bottom left),vga(top right)
 win-pc(client) lvds(bottom right),vga(top left)

linux-laptop kubuntu display layout:

vga,lvds (side by side)

win-laptop windows 7 display layout:

lvds,vga (side by side)

synergy config:

section: links
    linux-laptop:
            left(0,100) = win-laptop(0,100)
            right(0,100) = win-laptop(0,100)
            up(51,100) = win-laptop(51,100)
            down(0,50) = win-laptop(0,50)
    win-laptop:
            left(0,100) = linux-laptop(0,100)
            right(0,100) = linux-laptop(0,100)
            up(0,50) = linux-laptop(0,50)
            down(51,100) = linux-laptop(51,100)
