Synergy now easier to configure

Just updated Synergy to version 1.4.10 which uses a GUI to help layout the different screen relationships. Nice. Took about two minutes to install and share the keyboard and mouse between a PC and laptop.

Synergy lets you easily share your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers on your desk, and it’s Free and Open Source. Just move your mouse off the edge of one computer’s screen on to another. You can even share all of your clipboards. All you need is a network connection. Synergy is cross-platform (works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux).

Basically, it is a software Keyboard Video Mouse (KVM) switch.

MultiMouse

What a great idea for collaborative work groups: MultiMouse.

Users can drag the mouse cursor out of their computer’s desktop and multiple mouse cursors will appear on the common desktop of the central PC:

Multiple mouse pointers are useful for workgroups who want to brainstorm on a project and discuss ideas.

While all users are using their own computer, they can work together on one screen. All mouse cursors are visible on the main computers desktop. Users can also enter text on the central PC from their own keyboard.

Each remote mouse cursor has a customizable name tag to identify each user.

The user’s mouse cursor positions and remote text input is transmitted by MultiMouse using any existing Wireless or Ethernet connection. No extra hardware required!
