Here’s my setup now – I’ve now put the Mac screen on the left, then the vertically oriented screen I use for editing, then the main PC screen, then my email or extra screen:
<div class=”mceTemp”><dl class=”wp-caption alignnone” style=”width: 650px;”><dt class=”wp-caption-dt”><a href=”http://leonzak.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/2012-05-15_08-21-59_66.jpg”><img class=”size-large wp-image-392″ title=”2012-05-15_08-21-59_66″ src=”http://leonzak.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/2012-05-15_08-21-59_66-1024×576.jpg” alt=”My screen setup.” width=”640″ height=”360″ /></a>4 [4 screens – really ?]</dt></dl>At first I used the Mac keyboard and separate mouse – got annoyed with that pretty quick and went searching. Found a few solutions – did the vnc thing. It worked but not as well as I wanted – the updating of the screen and such did site real well. I kept looking. Tried Synergy – that worked but was not reliable on my system. Synergy would have been a workable solution but then I found Share-mouse.com with the product sharemouse. Â This one is not free and they do what I also hate – you can’t see the price until you get to the actual purchase page. What the ^*^&&*(? I don’t get the thinking behind that – do they really think that I’ll get to the inner page, 4 or 5 clicks in and go – “Well, I already went through 4 pages I’ll buy it anyway now that I’m here even though it’s more than I want to spend ?” really? B.S. Put the freaking price up front.
Anyway, it’s $24.95 per copy so you need two copies – one for the Mac, one for the PC. But Â – it WORKS. I use one keyboard and mouse. When I want to go to the Mac I just move the mouse over the screen and it and the keyboard are there. I was also able to switch the command and ctrl keys around to make it more what I was used to using on both PC and Mac. Well worth the money.
