    Question Synergy Autostart Ubuntu 12.04

    I am looking for help to get Quick Synergy to start directly after my system boots up. I have spent all last night looking up how to's and such but nothing worked, Ive tried adding it to the start up applications but that didnt work either. I would love some help with this as it is rather important to get working.


    I should mention that my Ubuntu system is a client and not the server of Synergy.

    Thanks in advance
    Robert

    I have been having a real hard time getting quick synergy to work so I installed the new client/server on all my machines.

    Then I found on another blog these instructions.

    Source:http://askubuntu.com/questions/15212...ynergy-on-boot

    For newer version of Ubuntu that use lightdm.

    I have successfully done the following for running the synergy client for the login screen, and after I login. It is much simpler than the other answers, IMHO.

    edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf as root.

    sudo vi /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    add the following line to the bottom of the file.

    greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/synergyc <ip/host>
    restart lightdm. (it is better to do this from a terminal or ssh session)

    sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm restart

    Also I prefer using nano so instead of
    sudo vi /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf I used
    sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

    I am still testing this out myself.

    So I have it working and I am pretty satisfied. You mentioned the other HowTos, I had it working on previous versions and I saved those files to reuse but in Ubuntu 12.04, you are using Lightdm instead of GDM and the old howto's are written for GDM.
