I have just checked this with the newest synergy package (see below):
using gnome3 as a server seems to work at least partially when having a
left/right setup. I can confirm that an up/down setup won't work.

Basically we are in the process of doing the same in Fedora: synergy got
un-retired and the synergy-1.3.7 package will obsolete its predecessor
synergy-plus. The packages will hit testing soon:

Please test the newest synergy-1.3.7-3 package and report the issues
against that component.

Since the move from synergy-plus to synergy is nearly done, there is
nothing special to be done besides testing the new packages. If you want
to help, please also test other combinations of server and client (e.g.
gnome2 vs. gnome3, kde vs. gnome, etc. ).
