Given the normal dumb questions on this forum I assumed that you might not have found the Synergy autostart page at the Synergy website that you pointed to and that is why I kindly pointed you to it - but no, I had not tried it myself.
In fact, the second link I found on Google is this one: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Syner ... tAutostart
at login screen , which is what I think you need. But of course, had you actually taken any initiative I'm sure you could have found that link yourself. But then it appears you don't actually want help from people trying to find what you could have found yourself....
