I'm trying to implement avahi support for synergy. Synergy let you
share your keyboard/mouse with other pc's, it's a cross-platform
application. For example you can use your Mac keyboard, in your
Windows Pc, vice versa.

In synergy you have to write the servers hostname or ip adress for
each client. That mean's each client have to know the server's
hostname or ip adress. But with avahi support, it would be automatic,
that means the server has only to set up his software and write the
client's hostname. That means only the server side has some work, but
for the client side it would be very easy.

Now i don't know where to start, i've found some python scripts from
the avahi homepage. These scripts:


Now the problem is, if i try to run the first script, i get the error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "synergy_avahi.py", line 3, in <module>
    import avahi
ImportError: No module named avahi
