    I'm installing and setting up http://synergy-foss.org/ on my MBP. I need to set up a .conf file so I can use Synergy with my desktop running Ubuntu. How do you create a .conf file? Is it simply creating a text file using TextEdit or is there another program?

    Thanks

    Yep. Create a plaintext file and name it file.conf .

    Here is the guide I've been following http://www.drquincy.com/blog/how-to-set-up-synergy-on-mac-os-x-and-ubuntu/. I have done everything then to the point where it says

    Your server is ready to roll. Open up the shell in OS X and navigate to where your .conf file is stored; execute this command ./synergys -f –config mysynergy.conf

    and when I execute it it says there is no such file or directory.

    irst HTML wont write a new file or append a file that isn't set to
    public permissions.
    It is far easier to do what you want with a database under PHP
    and far more secure if SQL login method is used
