    Just got this working on my end. It looks like the key is removing Synergy from "Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility" before reinstalling.

    Hi @smallake, 16.04 is not supported yet on 1.10.1, can you please install a previous version? Check our legacy downloads. Let me know if that helps.

    Hi, it looks like you are having issues with the vertical mouse scroll on your client, would you mind creating a support ticket? Otherwise, I'll be happy to help you in this forum post.

    I've been a fan of the application but after buying it, I have not seen much updates. I don't want a refund, but I want to see this software mature by solving the many issues it has. I don't even know if there is work being done, it's frustrating in a world where applications get regular updates.

    Oh wow. This has me both excited and worried. I'm still using Synergy 2, and it works just well enough that I haven't gone back to v1. (I basically always have to force-quit the synergy process to get it to connect initially, but then it works great.) I'm excited because I'd love for Synergy 2 to work reliably. I'm worried because your phrasing makes it sound like it might still be a while before there are any more v2 updates. Any idea on a rough timeline for this rewrite?

    Sorry for the double-post here (can't edit the earlier comment), but the lockups from the machine running WebEx stops, but I do see and experience regular client disconnections during this time anyway. This seems to be consistent with others' experiences. I'll be double-checking whether lowering Synergy service process priority from Realtime to High helps, but I don't recall having luck with this. Yet since this resets unless you use something that reapplies the setting for you, and it's been years, I have some minor doubts again and want to test. Next time I'm dragged into a conference call via WebEx, I'll check and report back only if I found a way to improve things. Otherwise assume changing priority does not help.

    Agreed. I'd at least like to see the team fix the issues that exist and they are aware of... Right now the product is completely unusable.

    Bobby, I got it working based on a thread that has been going for a while since the Mojave Developer Betas started in June. This is what I tried first and it worked on my system: System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy Tab -> Accessibility Section -> Unchecked Synergy I started synergy It asked for permissions and I re-checked the box and now all is working.

    Bit later than most, but same frustration after installing Mojave. Using iMac as server, and Synergy 2, I followed the trail blazed by Valor P, Kojoro and Jayson G (didn't need any configuration fiddlng) and it started working again. The only fiddly bit for me was finding and using the terminal in Utilities for the clean-up commands. Copy-pasting the lines of command and hitting Enter after each line did the trick, though. I was a bit surprised not to find a new version of Synergy waiting after Mojave. Thanks to our trail-blazers and good luck to everyone. Great forum. Cheers! PS No trouble on the Windows 10 client side.

    Its in beta. Things aren't going to work. It is bare bones right now. There are no option, you just drag the computer around and hope they work. Go back to Synergy 1 (as their official post says to do) if synergy 2 isn't meeting your needs. They are well aware of the issues (if you can call them that... it is in beta) with synergy 2.

    Hi guys and gals. On OSX, is there a reason/solution that when one of my machines wakes from sleep, Synergy cannot reconnect? I need to either kill the process or remove and add the client screen! Very tedious. Worst part is I can't do otherwise than put it to sleep (MBP so I just close the lid) because Synergy prevents the laptop from activating Screensaver! So, can I do anything about this? If there is no solution I will be going back to version 1 as this is beyond annoying: it's time wasting. Thanks

    Strange, that is a normal version of windows and its the most up to date build (same that im running). I just fresh installed windows 10 about a month or 2 ago. I think the development team is going to have to chime in on this. Under the circumstances you may have better/faster luck making a support ticket and pointing them to this thread so they can see the information that you've listed and what we've already discussed. https://symless.com/contact/customer-support?help-option=Troubleshooting+(Synergy+1) Where is says logs just put N/A and just copy paste your original post text into the description. Sounds like they'll have you maybe attach an error dump file (idk where its at, but they'll know) and send it to them (they'll likely ask for that after the first initial contact). I have contacted them about an issue that I'm having setting up my monitors with my setup and it has been over 24 hours so there may be a waiting list considering they're in beta for synergy 2 and i'm sure help is spread thin. Cheers and best of luck!

    Very true, XP is ancient by PC Standards. My systems can't support Win7 easily much less Win10 To upgrade the HW would be just too expensive. One solution would be a non-win os, but if x32 are not supported then this wonderful program is useless for me. Suggest full support in ver1 and if necessary restrict it in ver2

    Kojoro, That seems to have done the trick for me as well! THANK YOU! What I just did: Ran the steps to reinstall from fresh. Removed the Synergy entry from the "Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility" pane in System Preferences. For safety's sake, deleted the Synergy app from the Applications folder. Rebooted. Mounted the Synergy 1.10.1 DMG and dragged the Synergy app to the Applications folder. Started Synergy. The system asked me to verify that I wanted to run it, and asked if I wanted to allow Synergy to control my system. I went to the "Security & Privacy > Privacy > Accessibility" pane again, unlocked it, and checked the Synergy item in the iist. Restarted Synergy. I use a configuration file, so I selected that option and pressed Start. It started listening successfully. I started Synergy 1.10.1 on my Windows 10 client, and they exchanged key information and connected successfully. Yay! Once again, thanks to Kojoro, and the others that have contributed help with this issue!

    I GOT IT WORKING!! There appears to be an issue when "Enable Auto Config" is disabled. Here's what I did (macOS Mojave is Server): I followed the steps to reinstall from fresh Removed the app from System Preferences' "Security & Privacy > Accessibility" list Opened the app From System Preferences, I enabled Accessibility access, as requested Back in Synergy, enabled Auto Config (in Preferences, picture below) Allowed my client (Windows 10) to connect (had to accept fingerprint on Windows machine) Configured server with my Windows machine name Hope this helps!

    I came to request the same thing - independent master/slave relationships for keyboard and mouse. Actually, if you could get rid of the master/slave distinction altogether, that would be ideal. I want it to function like I have multiple Keyboards/Mice plugged into the computer which has the mouse focus. Where I can type on any keyboard, move any mouse, and the input is routed to the correct computer. Currently, I have to click the mouse and wait a second to switch master from one computer to another. Using a keyboard and mouse from separate computers simultaneously doesn't work. Not the most seamless experience!

    Ah Linux. I don't have that problem/luxury. I paid for Synergy just shortly before they announced the rollback/shuttering and offered a rebate. I should have taken it. Despite all experiences, I remain an optimist. Thanks for the response. I'll check out Input Director when I get back to Europe. Craig

    There's a bug on our download page where it sometimes shows Ubuntu users the Debian download. Please use this instead: https://symless.com/synergy/download/direct?platform=ubuntu&architecture=x64 Let me know if that doesn't work and we can try something else.

    Solved/Success: What I did ... 1. Completely remove Synergy from Ubuntu 16.04 using Ubuntu software (you may have to reboot if you have not done so since install to populate Ubuntu software) 2. Go to Files and search for Synergy (Activate hidden files with Ctrl-h) 3. Delete anything Synergy related (besides .deb file downloaded) and empty trash 4. Reboot system (precautionary) 5. open terminal in directory of .deb file 6. install manually with: sudo dpkg -i synergy-v1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2-Linux-x86_64.deb 7. I had an error on the first try that said: Package libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 is not installed. 7a. If you have this error type: sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 7b. repeat step 6 8. You should now be able to start synergy from dash, and activate it by entering key Issue: it seems that if you attempt to install Synergy from Nautilus or your web browser that after you click install the first time for version 1.8xxxx that Ubuntu switches to installing version 1.6xxx. Manually installing as above ensures that the correct version is installed on Ubuntu 16.04. Synergy: you are welcome to reimburse me with an additional software key for my trouble at my listed email address for the troubleshooting

    I regularly use the Zoom screen feature on my Mac, but when I fail to zoom out before I try and move the cursor to another screen the cursor fails to make the transition, and the cursor is unresponsive on the original screen. It'd be great if Synergy would force-unzoom the screen when moving to another screen.

    This can be done with Synergy as it is now. Just unpack the MSI file and run synergys.exe on the server, or synergyc.exe on the client. You will need to figure out the correct command line parameters and the configuration file (on the server) yourself. Here is a place to get started: https://github.com/synergy/synergy/wiki/Command-line To Will Michail: This has nothing to do with ctrl+alt+delete support. That is a totally separate issue. The requirement to modify the group policy to enable this is not from Synergy, but from Windows. This applies to any software which attempts to generate this key sequence.
