ubuntu synergy configuration

December 20, 2009

I have a laptop on the left side of a dual monitor setup on my desktop PC running ubuntu.  I use synergy to control the laptop mouse/keyboard with the main keyboard for my desktop.  My configuration was:

section: screens
antec:
latitude:
end

section: links
antec:
left = latitude
latitude:
right = antec
end

Then I added synergys to the auto-start menu.

repeated login prompts (credentials, username, password) for outlook 2007 on exchange 2007 when using AutoDiscover (0x80040413 error)

I think  the title says it all.  The problem was that we were using a self-signed certificate on the SmallBusiness/Exchange server.  The resolution was to go into IIS 7 and find the AutoDiscover virtual directory, go to the SSL settings for that virtual directory, and uncheck require SSL.

Turns about the above wasn’t a solution at all.  For the real solution, see:
