Setting up a multiple display with MAC and linux

This is my personal preferences can change:

1. Run Synergy server on linux

2. Run synergyc client on mac

3. Edit .synergy.conf on your home directory

section: screens
linux desktop:
mac client:
section: links
mac client:
right = linux desktop
linux desktop:
left = mac client

4. On you mac terminal i do this
alias command="killall -c ssh; ssh -nf -L 24800:localhost:24800 -L 5917:localhost:5901 -L 5918:localhost:5902 linuxbox -- 'sleep 999999999'"

There could be a better method here

5. For connecting the macbook to another monitor use this
mini dvi to vga adapter

You might have to restart your mac book here.

Vola you are done.
