To setup Synergy keyboard/mouse sharing:

Download synergy from http://sourceforge.net/projects/synergy2/files/ and install on the machines you want to participate in sharing.

For this example let's say I two systems with hostnames notebook and desktop, and I want to share the keyboard and mouse of desktop.

Create a configuration file, something like this:

section: screens
  mydesktop:
  mynotebook:
end

section: links
  mynotebook:
    left = mydesktop

  mydesktop:
    right = mynotebook
end

On desktop run:

synergys -f --config synergy.conf

On notebook run:

synergyc -f desktop
