*****this begins synergy from boot up – so all users will have synergy access to other machines*****

before running through this – you should do a which synergyc and which killall to make sure that your paths line up with the ones written below

also, dont forget to substitute all instances of <server> with the synergy server name or synergy server ip address

step by step:

sudo vi /etc/gdm/Init/Default
add this before “exit 0”

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 2
/usr/local/bin/synergyc <server>

save
—-
sudo vi /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default
add this before “# Set background color”

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 1
/usr/local/bin/synergyc <server>

save
—-
sudo vi /etc/gdm/Xsession
add this at the end of this file

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 1
/usr/local/bin/synergyc <server>

save

reboot

at this point you should see this client trying to access the synergy server

–if this does not work, try adding what is below this line–

sudo vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
add this below the “merge in defaults” if then statement

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 1
/usr/local/bin/synergyc <server>

save

sudo vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession
add this at the top of this file

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 1
/usr/local/bin/synergyc <server>

save

sudo vi /etc/X11/xdm/Xstartup
add this at the top of the file

/usr/bin/killall synergyc
sleep 1

save

reboot

at this point you should see this client trying to access the synergy server

tested with both fedora 4 & fedora 5 on x86
