QuickSynergy is a graphical interface (GUI) for easily configuring Synergy2, an application that allows the user to share his mouse and keyboard between two or more computers.

Synergy2 uses the TCP-IP protocol to share the resources, without the need for any external hardware, even between machines with diferent operating systems, such as Mac OS, Linux and Windows.

So QuickSynergy is a graphical user interface for Mac OS and Linux systems, since the official website presents only a Windows version.

Installation:

Just follow the usual procedure:

./configure
make
make install

You will need the GTK 2.0 and libglade-2.0 development packges installed on your computer in order to achieve a successful compilation.

Usage:

To configure synergy as a server, select the Server tab on the QuickSynergy main window. Fill in the fields with the clients' IP adresses/hostnames and then click Start. If you wish to stop the server, click Stop. Please notice that you cannot change any of the configurations nor start a synergy client while running the server. Also notice that if you click the Close button, the server will NOT be stopped.

To configure synergy as a client, select the Client tab on the QuickSynergy main window. Fill in the field with the server's IP address/hostname and the click Start. If you wish to stop the client, click Stop. Please notice that you cannot change the server's address nor start a synergy server while running the client. Also notice that if you click the Close button, the client will NOT be stopped.
