Move mouse by script


Recommended Posts


first: I'm using Linux and I love keyboard shortcuts. Unfortunately I noticed, moving mouse per script does not work as expected with Synergy.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Move mouse to middle of screen
  • Call 'xdotool mousemove 1 1'
  • Mouse is at top left corner - as expected
  • Move mouse a bit
  • Mouse jumps back to middle of the screen

That's especially annoying since I'm using i3 with multi-monitor setup. I am used to jumping back and forth between monitors with a shortcut. But with synergy mouse does not stay on selected monitor...

Does anyone know a workaround to e.g. somehow tell synergy "this is the new absolute mouse position"?

Thanks in Advance!
