Synergy is a program that will let you use one keyboard and mouse on multiple computers across a network. The computers can be running Linux, Windows, or MacOS. The computer with the keyboard and mouse is the server or host, and the computers with the displays to be controlled remotely are the clients. In this tutorial I will let you know how to get Synergy setup and running on your Ubuntu system.

On the left-hand monitor I have a Windows XP system running. On the right-hand monitor I run Ubuntu. If I move my mouse off my Windows XP monitor to the right, it shows up on the Ubuntu monitor and vice-versa. Plus cut-and-paste works between the machines as well.

Here’s how to configure Synergy with two computers. Let’s assume that you have two home machines called “windowspc” and “ubuntu”. We’ll put the Windows machine on the left and the Ubuntu machine on the right. One of the two machines will run as the Synergy server and the other will run as a Synergy client. I picked the Ubuntu machine to be the server.

Have you ever attached a USB to a computer and later found out that the Computer is infected by a virus? If you attach your infected USB drive to the infected computer the virus is transferred to the Computer in no time infecting all the important documents. But now you don’t have to worry about any USB Virus because USB Disk Security provides 100% protection against any threats via USB drive.

USB Disk Security provides 100% protection against any threats via USB drive, however, the majority of other products are unable even to guarantee 90% protection. USB Disk Security is the best antivirus software to permanently protect offline computer without the need for signature updates, but other antivirus software should update signature database regularly, and they cannot effectively protect offline computer. This light and easy to use solution is 100% compatible with all software and doesn’t slow down your computer at all. You pay USB Disk Security once and get it all, however, other antivirus products should be paid for updates every year.

How does this work?

Before I tell you how to hack the software and make it run in the trial mode forever, lets understand how this software works. When these softwares are installed for the first time, they make an entry into the windows registry with the details such as Installed Date and Time, installed path etc. After installation every time you run the software, it compares the current system date and time with the installed date and time. So, with this it can make out whether the trial period is expired or not.

So with this being the case, just manually changing the system date to an earlier date will not solve the problem. For this purpose there is a small Tool known as RunAsDate. It is a small utility that allows you to run a program in the date and time that you specify. This utility doesn’t change the current system date, but it only injects the date/time that you specify into the desired application.
