I have a number of systems & monitors on my desk, and one thing which has irked me for long time is scrolling didn’t work on one of my linux synergy clients. Today I needed to fix it!
With a little bit of help from here: https://code.google.com/p/synergy-plus/issues/detail?id=28#c17 it was fixed within minutes!
First off all quit synergyc, quicksynergy or whatever you are using.
Lets now start it manually, fire up a terminal and enter:
$ synergyc -f -d WARNING --name debian 192.168.0.200
Synergy should now be working as normal, now open up a web browser and attempt to scroll.
You should see messages similar to the following:
Feb 1 18:32:45 localhost Synergy+ 1.3.4: 2010-02-01T18:32:45 WARNING: Wheel scroll
delta (28) smaller than threshold (120)#012#011CXWindowsScreen.cpp,858
That delta number is the important bit!
Quit synergyc and now add
--yscroll 28 (or whatever your delta is) the full command should look like this:
$ synergyc -f -d WARNING --yscroll 28 --name debian 192.168.0.200
Scrolling should now work!
If this works for you (or doesn’t!) let me know in the comments!
