    I would be ashamed as a software engineer to call this "stable" I had this issue on two of my windows 10 computers and managed to get it to work. tested it and got it working by only doing a few things 1. Close the Synergy window 2. Stop the background Synergy service (do this from services.msc) 3. In regedit go to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software and delete the \Symless\Synergy key and all subkeys. 4. restart the synergy background service. 5. open the client, it will have a button to click to log into synergy, it will give you an error that it cannot connect. wait a moment and click again. second time its clicked it will likely open a browser window to log into synergy. after you log in the client will likely start to work.. this may be a login issue with the craptacular cloud service. i noticed after the successful login and the client working correctly a file called "synergy-user.cfg" appeared in the %programdata%\Symless\Synergy directory. Someone else feel free to try this and see if it works for you as well.

    +1 this sucks...... V1 was much easier.... Please get a icon in the menubar (Macosx) with command/options Please get an icon in the task bar (in the "notification area") on windows, without it this software is unusable junk........ that runs without me knowing it. deleted ........ please let met know when it is fixed symless.........

    Signed into the forums to second this. I don't mean to be rude, but I will withdraw my support for Synergy if it requires cloud connectivity. There is absolutely no reason the application should fail without an internet connection. I need a KVM solution, not a self-aware settings-in-the-cloud-storing ostentatious replacement.

    I don't know if this falls under the coming features ("Tinker-y" Settings panel) or (Making the window size and elements dynamically adjustable) but I'd really like to see better position control for multi-monitor setups. I have two adjacent monitors to my main screen, but my right one is in portrait mode. So it is taller than the other two. My second computer screen is above my 1st computer's primary display. But I can't drag my mouse directly to it. I have to go to the taller screen to the right since it has the highest point of my setup. However, I'm able to move my cursor down to my main display like normal. This was confirmed when I leveled the right portrait screen with my main screen in Window's Display Settings, and I was able to move the cursor back and forth like normal. I'd like to see an interface like windows display settings, but for synergy where the screens just like like an extra monitor and can be moved around.

    I did a complete uninstall of Synergy 2 on both of my machines, followed by an install of the most recent 1.8 build. I had almost forgotten how rock-solid and genuinely good of a product 1.x is. I haven't had a single problem all day, and I can quickly turn it off from my menubar when I bring my personal laptop to another room. My advice to the Symless dev(s): Don't try to re-invent something just to re-invent it. You already have a great product that people will continue to buy. Improve on it, don't replace it. Innovation is as much about adding value as it is about creating new value.

    I'm going to have to disagree and say that I don't think many of the people here are power users. Speaking from the perspective of someone with a bit of QA and UX background professionally, the main issues being pointed out for this 2.xx line are that of visual feedback and common UX expectations. Specifically: You "install" Synergy (clearly labeled Install Helper). What really happens is the service is installed but found to be no where on the system. This breaks macOS conventions. It's not in the Applications folder. It's not in the Login Items list. It's not anywhere which makes it non-obvious that the user just installed a service that autostarts on every boot. It also means it cannot be uninstalled to the normal user because they don't know this. This also starts right away without any indication that the install process finished. Super confusing as I was never sure if I should close the window at any point which leads me to my next point about UX. Next, It tells you to now install and start it on another computer. Sounds good. I do that on my Windows machine. The new computer appears magically. Very nice auto detection. However, it randomly turns green then back to grey? What does that mean? (I really still don't know.) Normal UX expectations state that green means go so that must mean that it connected and turned on but then off? Why did it stop working? So the normal user will right click and notice that you can "Share from this.computer". Maybe that is it, but that does nothing as far as I can tell. No visual feedback after choosing that option. Did that do something? Try mousing over and you'll see that it works. But nothing changed visually on the configuration. That's not good design. Ok, so it works. It's taking up a space on my Dock so I guess I can hit X to close it. Doing so closes the app completely and without leaving a menubar/tray icon or anything. Normal users will panic at this point thinking that they quit the application completely as that is normal macOS convention. So they will look to reopen the app without even trying to see if it's still running. Why do I know this? Because that's exactly what I did. So you go to Launchpad and type "Syner..." wait, nothing is appearing. Did it install? Do I have to run the installer again? At this point I went into QA mode and started trying out different things to try and figure out how this thing worked. I reran the installer (you don't actually need to), checked my Activity Monitor, looked for documentation, rebooted, etc. That's what brought me here. I never approached this as any sort of power user or IT pro. I bought this to just Get Things Done and from the sounds of the other posts (gaming for example), that's what everyone else bought this for too. So I'll retract my complaint about functionality downgrade and even documentation and instead say this: Synergy 2.xx is at best beta software. It's not a good macOS app. This is what makes this one of my most regrettable purchases ever. At the bare minimum, the screens should turn and stay green when computers are connected and working. In one day of usage, I ran into #3 and #4 that Chris0x00 posted. For the intended goal of being unobtrusive, this is what makes me claim that it's beta software. The app should also actually install an application. That's macOS convention #1 that needs to be fixed. There are more, but at the very least fix that. Lastly, everyone expects to be able to quit an app that they installed. That isn't a power user thing. It's just common sense.

    +3 (at least) for a stop service GUI button. There are loads of credible reasons why you might want to suspend the service, without having to do it manually. It should be part of the app.

    Are these hotkeys surfaced in documentation anywhere for Synergy 2? It seems that if you don't just know this stuff from prior versions already (I'm new to Synergy) this information is completely buried. At a glance it looks like Synergy 2 wasn't ready to leave beta testing.

    Hi is there a use guide for Synergy 2? when i first installed it it worked fine apart from some glitching between pcs, after a reboot however it wont work, i can see both machines on the front end of synergy but thats it, i can make one turn green, but i have no idea what this means? There is no help option or clues in the software. As a technician in the IT Trade i can normally figure things out but it looks as though this software has no options or configuration options. I need a solution that works consistently or that i can tinker to get working seamlessly not just when the stars align. can anyone point me in the right direction? The symless website offers no information, i couldn't even find these forums via the website, i had to google it! First impressions. pretty damn poor

    I bought Synergy 2 because I stream and wanted a way to flick between 2 pcs whilst streaming (game on 1 pc and stream on the other) The issues I've had when playing the 2 games I play were: Problem: Call of duty WW2 - When i want to get to play COD all works fine, I turn my charater left or right and it does not move the mouse cursor onto the other screen, however when I want to move the curser onto the other monitor, I can't! because it thinks I'm just trying to move my character on my gaming pc when in reality I'm trying to get to the other PC monitor and I end up spinning in circles. Possible Solution - Maybe a hotkey to bring synergy infront of the game (without minimizing it) so for example I'm playing COD but I have to quickly click something on my streaming pc, so I press Alt+S which brings up my cursor (game stays full screen but allows me to go to my left screen, then to return I simply drag the mouse back and click the game to bring it to the front again) Problem: When playing Fortnite Battle Royale, Synergy acts in a completely different way, I try to move left or right in game and my mouse goes onto my left screen, it thinks everytime I move my cursor I'm trying to get into my left computer, which makes the game unplayable as I simply cannot move. I'm not sure what causes this, possibly an in game setting? I had it set to fullscreen which makes sense as the game is then at the front and should not close or minimize unless I alt+tab it, instead it tries to go to the left monitor if I so much as move the mouse to the left in game. Problem: Having run into these issues I had to end Synergy 2 so I could stream as I did not have time to find the solution, I closed synergy2 on both pcs only to find it was still running, so I went to task manager and ended the process tree and Synergy2 Just kept loading back up instantly, I restarted the PC and it was still there. I then UNINSTALLED Synergy 2 on my streaming pc and it was STILL somehow connecting both pcs, I had to uninstall Synergy 2 on both pcs just to get it to stop! Having paid for this I'm really not very happy with it, but maybe there is a solution to these very basic problems. A hotkey would especially be good in games like COD, so I don't have to wait until the game ends and I get to the main menu just to be able to access my other PC.

    I apologize if this has already been answered. I have 6 PCs on the same network but only want to share in sets of two -- i.e., one mouse and keyboard for PCs 1 and 2; one mouse and keyboard for PCs 3 and 4, etc. I do not want to share a mouse and keyboard between all 6 PCs. How do I do this? It was possible in 1.8 but there's not even an options panel anymore.

    Weighing in here as well on 2: Huge blockers: - Not being able to start/stop the app. - Not being able to minimize to tray - Not being able to see any configuration, change configuration, or deploy this on offline machines without a connection to the internet. - Looks like there's constant queries to the net to "sync" latest configuration or status between my logged in machines. - Requires a newer version of OSX than I'm able to upgrade to. I too have to roll back to 1.8 until these are resolved. Really disappointed in the new version.

    This worked for me! So thumbs up for easy instructions and for taking Synergy 2.0 from an .exe in my download folder to an upgrade over 1.0. I fall into the demographic of difficult circumstances that 2.0 is designed to alleviate.

    It’s not like it’s connecting to your servers right now, anyway - I’m still getting the 400 bad requests, so no worries there
  15. 2 points
    My guess is that the cloud config is meant to avoid the known annoyance of having other computers in your same network popping up in your server requesting to connect, which sometimes happens with 1.x specially in corporate networks. If you have to login to your account when setting up the machine, that machine gets tied to your account and only has to talk to other machines registered in your account. With Zeroconf/Bonjour you advertise your service to the whole network and any machine can at least try to connect to it. The alternative is to disable autodiscovery and connect machines by static IP. But the tradeoffs of having to rely on a remote server to be accessible and responsive just to be able to use the software far outweigh the benefits of avoiding issues with local network autodiscovery. I mean, look at it, it's not only unnecessary but also unreliable as hell. Either you make your cloud service 100% fail-proof —and that means making damn sure it's accessible from anywhere, even behind a buttload of firewalls— or you make your cloud service optional, sort of like the config synchronization service that Firefox offers, for example.

    I noticed that @Nick Bolton gave my comment a thumbs-down. That's developer hubris of the highest order -- the assumption that documentation is not necessary. In the meantime, in the "How on earth do you close Synergy 2" thread, there are many comments saying that documentation is required.

    The forum ate the rest of my post: I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that's encountered these problems with Synergy 2, and very recently at that. My concerns are just compounding: 1. Installation of multiple services with no documentation explaining why they exist or what they do. 2. No documentation of any kind, functional or otherwise. No one expects a closed-course product to reveal all of their intellectual property, but it is generally expected that customers are provided with some sort of documentation stating things like required ports and account privileges. 3. Random "Cannot connect to server" problems. 4. Intermittently drops connection between 2 Macs, typically with no apparent cause and rarely auto-reconnected. 5. "Reconnection" process after rebooting 1 or both machines only works ~75% of the time. Many times several reboots and service stops are the only way to regain functionality. 6. No ability to "Quit". This one should be self-explanatory. So I guess another +1 for a GUI quit button. And some docs would be cool too.

    The best way to use synergy with gaming is to lock the keyboard and mouse to the gaming machine by pressing the scroll lock key while the cursor is on the gaming machine. You can then unlock it when you want to move to the streaming machine again by pressing scroll lock. This will solve your problem with Fortnite. In COD you will probably have to put the game in a menu of some sort to release the cursor and move to the streaming machine. In both of these scenarios the game will probably minimize but synergy can't help with that. Most full screen games minimize when they loose focus. Stuart

    In response to KringleKrebs: I own a software shop myself so I'm not making any assumptions about my experience being typical or atypical. I don't need to assume, the evidence is a Google search away (in addition to this forum). I have invested a significant number of hours trying to get Synergy -- which again, I've used for over half a decade quite happily -- to work. I've tried multiple OS's and configurations. I thought downgrading to 1.8 was a temp solution but that craps out routinely as well. I'm a big fan of what Nick and his team have created but I'm like ashleyg9 I'm not at all satisfied with "we'll refund your money." For starters, they're continuing to sell a product as stable that they have ample evidence isn't. There is zero documentation on the changes from v1 to 2. There is nothing on their site to indicate that some users are having issues -- at the very least I could have saved a lot of time if I knew it weren't specific to my set up. If I released a totally undocumented update to our software that caused more than a handful of customers to have issues I'd at least be proactive about addressing it. Synergy manages to email about updates, maybe they could send out a "Hey, we realize some people are having issues..." notification? I'm not the Grinch but don't try to put a lump of coal in my stocking and tell me to be happy because most kids got a present.

    I think it's a good description, and it'd also be useful for those of us (like me) who multi-boot different Linux installations on the same host. It does go to the general theme that "more control in the users' hands" might be a good idea rather than attempting to automagically set everything up.

    I have also had nothing but lag when I try to use the mouse from my Win10 PC on my MacBook pro. Has anyone gotten an answer about this other than "Install the latest version"? Cause I literaly just got synergy today, so i have all the latest versions and everything and still experince lag that makes it unusable.

    @kameyin this is exactly what i went through. i used microsoft garage mouse earlier and had issues with it. after some time i discovered symless through Linus Tech Tips and looking at the website gave me no idea that synergy 2 is beta software. i saw all the features that are marked as "soon" yet i still bought it. later on i realized that its not running as an app, has no taskbar icon (im on win 10) nor any other form of options available for me to configure it. i can't copy stuff from computer a to b nor share clipboard contents or anything else. i had issues while gaming and tried to disable it while gaming just to find out i cant disable it by normal means. only stopping the service or uninstalling worked and thats nothing i expect of a sold program. heck, i couldnt even find this forum until i somehow stumbled upon it and saved the url since then. (wheres the link on the websute to the forum?)

    Also the form offers a twirl-down that self-populates the ID data for logs uploaded. Really clever idea. However, it only does so for 2 logs. Also, one can click to add more computers to the form but this feature is useless since the log ID will not auto-populate nor can it be manually entered.

    So I just purchased this recently and installed it on macOS and Windows 7. Aside from the setup being unintuitive, I also had this question. If you close the window, the app just closes and the service continues running in the background. There's no way to stop the service or any indication that it's still running. Having used v1 several years ago, this feels like a huge downgrade in functionality (not to mention documentation). This is starting to become one of my biggest software purchase regrets. I saw that they are on vacation until Jan 8th, but I do hope that we get an immediate response once the holidays are over.

    The problem is not linked with Synergy, I have 3 monitors on my Ubuntu, the left-most one being a portrait one. When my mouse is on the left of my middle monitor, I can see it mouse in my left-most one at the same time, but not rotated (if I move to the left, it moves up). When my mouse is in the left-most monitor, it works perfectly (left goes left). It does that even when Synergy isn't connected.

    Thanks for the quick response. I seem to remember a beta a while back for Android. I think Chrome OS now supports (and encourages) Android apps for Chrome OS. I think the Android tablet market and Chorme OS market could be covered with one version. That would be awesome.

    I agree, thing is they have been pushing the email marketing campaign since Thanksgiving knowing full well it has issues especially with the linux variants and have no idea when customers will be able to even install on linux. Knowing this means that they are consciously committing fraud at best and downright theft at worse. They are purposely selling a product that they know doesn't even install much less work. If that is not the definition of fraud then I don't know what is.

    OK, I never could get the BETA to work on any machine. Went back to Version 1. I saw today that Version 2 was not only released but had a 2.03 STABLE version. I took the plunge. It installed on my Mac Sierra machine and tells me to add another machine. So far so good. I installed on both my Windows 10 and Windows 7 machine and now have the infamous "There was a problem connecting to the auto-config service. Retry" on both Windows machines. I did a clean install after removing 1.18 and rebooting. Disabled Firewall and Anti-Virus. The machines are sitting on the desk side-by-side, connected to the same router. This is not as far as I got running the BETA software. I have run Synergy for a very long time and is a tool I must have. I have no idea what is going on with the software. It used to just work. I am not looking for a refund, I just want software that works as advertised when it comes out of Beta. And Offline is a MUST. This cloud crap is for people who need to store stuff. Just because it is the rage, does not mean Synergy needs it. What does the cloud have to do with my 3 computers. I get paid to develop, not troubleshoot a utility I paid for. No output, no money coming in.

    Neither of these are actual solutions given that 1) most average users shouldn't be opening terminal, and 2) you can't remap the lock key. None of my keyboards have a scroll lock key. I have to unload the plist and uninstall synergy on my mac to disconnect from the service.

    I have the same problem. I have a Mac laptop I use both at home and at the office. At home I have another Mac, at work I have a Windows 7 box. I first configured Synergy to at home, so the GUI showed just the two Macs. Then I brought the machine to work, and the GUI showed the work Win 7 box, the home Mac, and two instances of the laptop. One of those laptop instances is the name of the machine on the home network (foobar.local) and the other is its name on the work network (foobar.mycompany.local). And the kicker: I hadn't used the laptop with the home Mac for a week, and today when I tried to do just that the GUI on that computer shows five machines, there is a second network name for the home Mac, and in the laptop's GUI I see three instances of the laptop and one instance of the home machine. This is completely stupid. I am watching the synergy-router.log file (/Users/andy/Library/Synergy/synergy-router.log) from the Mac's Console app (just double-click on the file and it opens in Console, very handy) on the home machine, and I see the Synergy service attempting to connect to the machines on the work network (I recognize the IP addresses). I am also watching synergy-service.log and it is continually starting and stopping the core process. Add to it that there is no user configuration, no documentation, and oh by the way it uses a cloud service that many reasonable employers would block by default makes the product impossible to use. Here is what Synergy needs to make this a viable product: DOCUMENTATION DOCUMENTATION DOCUMENTATION A user interface that isn't spartan to the point of useless. Synergy doesn't have a user interface. It has a window. Multiple configuration support, like Synergy 1 had, and that should be part of the base package, not as part of a higher-priced "pro" version. Get rid of the insecure ridiculous cloud nonsense. What if the user was on machines that for Very Good Reasons are NEVER connected to the internet? (I assume that nobody developing the product has ever worked in a secure environment.) For $20 should I complain? Well, yes, I should, if the product doesn't work. I believe in supporting independent software vendors, but Synergy is non-functional as it stands now, and why should I spring $50 for the Pro version if the Basic version isn't any good?

    Same. Holding off on reverting back to syn 1 in hopes of some sort of configuration. Thought that was supposed to be in 2.0.3... Release notes would be appreciated.
  41. 1 point
    Hi Davey, I agree with you. Hi, Symless - could you please provide release notes. Could you also provide a user guide - specifically how to start, stop and control Synergy - how it is supposed to work and if there are any commands / configuration / controls that influence its behavior. I like the tool and have no problem waiting for these small annoyances to be fixed, but it took me ages to work out that the GUI issue on a mac is a known problem because I had no idea how I was supposed to bring it up. I also suspect there are commands that do things and my aimlessly clicking around the screen to try and guess how to control Synergy is not a good use of my time. From my perspective, if my computers (a Mac running 10.12.6 and a PC running Windows 10 Fall Creators Edition - i.e., the latest version of Windows 10). I find that if the PC goes to sleep and wakes up again, Synergy 2.02 does not re-establish contact between the machines. To get them to work, I have to reboot the PC and start clicking and then I have to start Synergy on both machines (the Synergy GUI does not start up on the Mac - except through a command line) and start clicking the images on the screens that eventually show up. After

    How about a tray icon with a pull down that will allow you to activate / deactivate synergy, or lock the keyborad and bring up the config window. It couls aldo change color if you are connected to another computer.

    Hi Siphon, I just made it work by running the core like this (as the user, not root.): /usr/bin/synergy-core --server -f --run-as-uid 1000 --debug DEBUG --name archlinux --enable-drag-drop --profile-dir /var/lib/synergy --log /var/log/synergy/synergy-core.log -c /var/lib/synergy/synergy.conf --address :24800 I stopped the service. I ran the synergy-core --server I started the service. I use "share from" on the windows computer. I will try to update the synergy.service file.

    This is just what I need, I need to force a particular machine to always share, since I also use the mouse on the other machine. I hope this feature does come on synergy 2.1 as this is something I really need to use my computers efficiently.

    Agree with @wunderdojo. Synergy is a game changer in my office, so naturally I wanted to try the latest version. 1.x was quirky, but once you got the config right it worked every time and was fit for a production environment. I paid for the 2.0 beta and left it on the shelf when it didn't work. Then I tried again once I saw a 'stable' version had been released. It didn't work either. Glad it's working for some folks but this is not ready for primetime. I'm back on 1.8.

    Synergy 2.1 will roll out as a beta in January and a final in later months from January. That will include an offline activation and connection service. v2.0 was made primarily to address auto-configuration. If your internet is down, establishing a new connection will not work, but your connection is still local, making the lack of an internet connection a non-factor. All the cloud is doing is bridging the two computers by sharing IP info. After that, the connection is purely local and no longer dependent on the cloud. That's the flow I got from Nick, and if it isn't this way in v2.0, it definitely will in 2.1, as Symless has said that the client will become less dependent on cloud services.

    Just was unable to use Syn2 due to a failure to connect to background service. I've not seen that happen before. If it's due to a dependency on the internet, that could lead to thousands of clients not being able to work. If so, seems like a major priority to remove that dependency.

    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

    Is there any way to wake a client computer (maybe via WOL) using Synergy? Could a hot-key combination be set to wake a specific client from sleep? If so, how? Thanks!
