Install synergy. Open “Terminal”
sudo apt-get install synergy
Check you are using the same version as this guide. Open terminal;
t@ttdell:~$ synergyc --version synergyc 1.4.16, protocol version 1.5 Copyright (C) 2012 Bolton Software Ltd. Copyright (C) 2008-2012 Nick Bolton Copyright (C) 2002-2012 Chris Schoeneman
Run Synergy gui
- Setup the server how you want it. See an example is the screenshot;
Note in the log at the bottom where the tmp config file is. Copy and paste this to the terminal as follows;
gksu gedit /tmp/qt_temp.TJ2259
Or your own home directory.
Search “Startup Application”
synergys --config /home/t/.synergy.conf
synergys --config ~/.synergy.conf
synergys --config $HOME/.synergy.conf
~/did not work for me so logically
$HOMEwon’t work either.
Select “Use existing configuration” “Configuration file:”
Don’t know if this is essential but it makes sense at least.
On the client machine (also Ubuntu, in this case 10.04) “Preferences” > “Startup Applications”
Any problems, check the IP’s (see previous guide).
Also, check the client is running the same verion;
Note the “c” for client as synergy just launches the gui.
If you find the “@” symbol does not work and comes out as inverted commas or something then add this to you “.bashrc” file;
xmodmap -e "keycode 24 = q Q at at at at"
This is frowned apon as a work around but I found I had less problems when using this method if I used this latest version of synergy with both laptops running ubuntu as opposed to the server as a Windows 7 machine.
synergyc 192.168.0.9“Save”. Reboot.
01 Synergy on Ubuntu 12.04 client
02 sudo apt-get install quicksynergy
03 Applications > Accessories > Quick Synergy
05 Server hostname/IP Address
06 192.168.1.3 (XP server IP)
07 Screen name:
08 mwdell (Ubuntu client name)
08.1 Now wait a moment before clicking anything else.
09 Navigate in Gnome/Nautilus to > Places > Home > Right-click “Public”
11 Install smb/cifs as requested
13 Applications > Accessories > Terminal
14 ping -c 2 192.168.1.3 (XP server ip test)
15 Terminal: synergyc –version (check it is 1.3.8)
16 Leave Ubuntu client and go check out the XP server
17 Download Syngery 32bit for XP version 1.3.8
18 Important as the Ubuntu 1.3.8 and another later XP version like synergy-1.4.8-Windows-x86.exe won’t work together (IMO).
18.1 So get http://synergy.googlecode.com/files/synergy-1.3.8-Windows-x86.exe
29 [New Link]
0 to 100% of the right of 192.168.1.8 goes to 100% of ELIOTS
30 [New Link]
0 to 100% of the left of ELIOTS goes to 0 to 100% of 192.168.1.8
31 Note: You have to setup both or you may end up “stuck” on the client screen.
34 Back to Ubuntu and Quick Synergy.
35 QuickSynergy Use tab > Execute.
36 Move mouse to left of screen and back again. Great Success.
cd ~/.local/share mkdir -p gtksourceview-2.0/language-specsChange line 27 to:
cp /usr/share/gtksourceview-2.0/language-specs/sh.lang ./
Basically adding ;.bashrc
So here is the file to save you the hassle of this process. Just extract to your Home directory ~/
I wanted a theme that worked with the Banners Notification on the iPhone 4 Firmware 5.0.1. The Gimme 4 theme in black that I found on a forum did not have the Drop Win icon so a made one.
To install you need Cydia, Open SSH, Filezilla then ftps to /private/var/mobile/Library/SBSettings/Themes and put the extracted Gimme 4-1_5.0.1_TT_edit folder there. Rename it to something simple like “Gimme 4″ if you like!To use this I found I had to go to SBSetting and configure the iOS 5 Notification section and set it to Separate List “ON”. Then set the notifications toggles. That is to say that having Separate List “OFF” with Using (existing) Windows Toggles did not work.
In short, use Separate List.
I have tried a fair few apps to sync files but the best has to be the ones based on Rsync.
If you have an rsync server (I have a managed one). Then this is a rock solid way to sync a directory of data to your phone.
Acrosync: Claims to be the only rsync app for iPhone and I could not disprove that. Works well and has a Pro version with no adverts.
rsync *: The market has loads of rsync apps but I happen to use rsync backup. It just works fine.
I tried Wifi Syncr which will handle Windows shares and is really cunning and flexible but I found that it struggled to sync medium sized (100MB) files as does the iPhone as it happens.Anyhow, I also just wanted a way to quickly ftp photos and ‘ting to the rsync server so I use an old favorite, DropUpLoad.
For iPhone you have what Android could really do with, OPlayer. This iPhone app is pretty simple in that it combines a video player with an interface to browse network shares. The major flaw is that you can’t add anything to iTunes or Camera Roll. Even with iFile this does not really work.
If I wanted an rsync server on my LAN I would just use Vbox and Ubuntu. Kind of daft to have to run it every time but I have tried rsync server for Windows with cygwin and all the rest but setup and config it just too much of a stove pipe system. I like stuff to be portable and easy to rebuild, Vbox with Ubuntu does that.
