How do I start synergy 1.7.3 before login with lightdm?

After switching from Ubuntu 12.04 to Peppermint OS, it came time install synergy (client) and I had forgotten how annoying it was to find out how to configure synergy to start before login when using encryption. I had been using 1.6.4 for a long time but decided to upgrade synergy to 1.7.3 for the new install. Previously my lighdm.conf looked like this:

display-setup-script=/usr/bin/synergyc --crypto-pass bd5f65cb5dba64c694071d3a7b3c0cd3
My problem is the new ssl encryption the --crypto-pass option does not appear to work. The server key remains the same throughout reboots, though I cannot substitute the MD5 hash for the new ssl key. Does anyone have an idea what the proper syntax is?

Does Peppermint OS use sysvinit, upstart or systemd?

In any case, you need to add the start script to a certain runlevel.

Sorry for the late reply. Peppermint OS uses upstart. As for the script, I am not sure what the relevant commands are for 1.7.3.


autostart, lightdm, ssl authentication
