Share mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems (Linux, Mac OS X, Windows), each with its own display. Copy/paste is supported.
With Synaptic, install
Under the “Share” tab, enter the full hostname of the client. Click on “Run”. Launch synergyc on the client and enjoy.
If it works, you don't need quicksynergy anymore. Copy the just created config file to your home directory and launch synergys :
cp ~/.quicksynergy/synergy.conf ~/.synergy.conf synergys
Download the Mac OS X archive: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=59275
./synergyc -f <synergy server hostname>
Remove '-f' to run it as a daemon.

Update the path to synergyc and the server hostname (it's
caeser in the example above). If something doesn't work, look in
/private/var/log/system.log for lines containing “launchd”. This example has been tested with Mac OS 10.4 Tiger. If it doesn't work, try to desactivate your screen saver (set it to “Never”).
