Full Version: Handy Linux (and Windoze/Mac) app: Synergy - for Keyboard/Mouse sharing
OESF Portables Forum > Model Specific Forums > Gemini PDA > Gemini PDA - Linux OS

I've just been playing with Synergy on my Gemini's Debian installation. It's so you can share your (desktop) keyboard and mouse - dragging it off the edge of the screen onto the Gemini's desktop for remote control - and much easier to click around the interface.

CODE
$ sudo apt install synergy quicksynergy


Then find the QuickSynergy icon in the Accessories menu for simple config.

And you can download the Windows/MacOS apps here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/synergy-st...ource=directory

(There is also a commercial version: https://symless.com/synergy

Thanx, thought I'd try this out. I installed on Windows box and the Gemini. I start the Windows box, checked as server, it appears to "listen"

Then I set the Gemini as client, enter the server IP using the value shown on the desktop, then start.

It appears to start the client, try to connect, then fail. It continues to try to connect and fail... and repeats again, and again... AM I doing something wrong? Any ideas re what to do next?
Thanx for your help!

It looks like your Gemini can't reach the Windows PC. Can you ping it? etc?

I'm guessing the SSL error is because you enabled the encryption setting? Just a guess. Lots of threads if you google 'synergy ssl error' - eg https://symless.com/forums/topic/3144-error...m-call-failure/

And how did I connect the two? By running the server on my desktop and the client on my Gemini...

Well, actually, by "connected" I was wondering if USB-C on left of Gemini to Desktop USB, USB-C to HDMI on right of Gemini to Desktop; both on wireless network, etc.
