    I can not install synergy 1.10 on Linux Mint 18.3 Xfce Always the error was "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libqt5core5a (>=5.7.0)" After trying to solve the error for several weeks; I found that there is a deb version for UBUNTU that does not appear in the regular downloads. https://symless.com/synergy/download/direct?platform=ubuntu&architecture=x64 I had nothing to lose, so try that version, and install it perfectly on Linux Mint 18.3. Everything working wonderfully. I write this in case someone else has this installation problem ..

    Doesn't happen for me so I'd just be guessing. I'd make sure the autostart file you edited is the correct one ---> ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart and not one of the at least 3 autostart files located elsewhere in Raspbian. Editing this one will run the script when you log on as user Pi, or whatever user - whichever home directory you find the autostart file in that you add the startsynergy line into. There are ways to intentionally run a script every time you open any terminal, though I never do that and I'd have to look it up. So this is my best guess. I know this method runs flawlessly for me.

    It'd be really cool to be able to chose to have whichever mouse or keyboard I happen to be using just work. I know it's really nice to have one mouse locked to one screen sometimes and another that commutes, the same is true of some keyboards say a laptop keyboard and trackpad that only works to the laptop, but having the computer next to it coming to take over but there are times where I have my hands on a keyboard (mechanical plugged in) from one computer and mouse (part of a wireless set) from another and even if it's a hotkey to make it happen being able to just continue as though they're attached together could be useful. The wired mouse I really like to always be attached to one screen for tapping on links etc while I like the wireless keyboard kind of out of the way cause it's not as good as my mechanical one, but sometimes gets used when I'm not at my desk. Yes I could swap the devices over so everything is connected to where's most convenient for synergy, I use the wireless mouse as the one I don't want to swap screens but then if I only have that computer turned on I might have to swap everything back so my mechanical keyboard is where it belongs.

    Last time I tried Synergy 1, I didn't have the networking knowledge to establish any kind of connection. Synergy 2 didn't always work, but when it did, I recall only having to adjust settings on my machine, not through the Synergy App. Thus, I've only ever kept to using Synergy 2, and I REALLY don't feel confident in ever trying out Synergy 1 again.

    Interesting solution! Pinned for visibility. Does this work for anyone else? If so, I'll add it to the lag page: https://symless.com/help/s1-troubleshooting/s1-mouse-cursor-lag

    Nick Bolton says in the thread that smokebanshee links: It installs fine when using the correct version.

    Some users have installed Synergy 2 Beta without knowing that it's now a beta version (users who purchased between Nov 2017 and June 2018 have access to Synergy 2 Beta and Synergy 1). Synergy 2 Beta still at the early prototyping stage and contains many bugs, so you should only use it if you like testing out cutting edge software. You may not be aware that Synergy 1 is actually the current stable version. So if this is the case, we recommend that anyone having problems with Synergy 2 Beta download Synergy 1 and use that instead. Make sure you uninstall Synergy 2 Beta first though. Otherwise, if you're simply reporting a bug in Synergy 2 Beta or want to share your feedback, use the Early Access Beta forum.

    I know you need your DRM solution to verify to your master server stuff is actually being used with a license, but always-online is a bit stupid when it fails to work or when the internet goes out. Recently Google Cloud had a massive hiccup that was actually visible on traffic meters. Also, not having an actual error message displayed to the user "Could not connect to synergy cloud" or something makes it hard to know what's going on. I don't like to toot my own horn too much, but these Quality of Life things are what I do for a living so I'd be more than happy to create you some bullet points to work on in regards to usability not just for enterprise, but consumers as well. There needs to be some serious updates if this software is to spread and manifest itself within the market. Stability is one thing, but when things go wrong or don't quite work there needs to be feedback. You can't rely on always online, edge cases of bad connections and other temporary issues need to be accounted for. You can't just put a tray icon there when you start the helper, either put it there at all times, opening the helper on double click or add an option to open it, it should be there when the service is running as control. Mouse capture modes for "main applications" needs a look at in regards to stopping a machine switch when some applications don't fully capture the cursor, alternatively a mode to disable synergy when certain processes are running and in focus. Sound capture, that's probably been requested a million times huh. Cross-machine open links or quick switch shortcuts, open any hyperlinks back on the main machine instead of the satelites, shortcut to switch between machines that can be set. Generator for links to simply click on, download synergy already logged in for setting up new computers without having to manually enter passwords and fiddle around with the service install. Grid system to align machines. Auto-updater and version control for debugging. I know this may sound pretty harsh and you may feel as though I am being unreasonable, but you got to remember, when you prominently display yourself through ads, sponsored videos and other media you will be met with people who have expectations and may be looking to switch from other similar solutions to yours on actual enterprise scale. At that point someone like me comes along that handles businesses and their IT needs looking to move away from said competitors and they are running my door in in regards to "back in beta" and the likes of features they "require". I wish you well for the further development and hope this recent issue can be resolved quickly.

    I had to sort through old information to get method right and, as is usual in these cases, one small detail was holding me up. Here's what I did to get synergy 1.10 to start at boot on my Pi 3b+ running the latest Raspbian as of this date. Credit Nick Cullen for the script. 1) Make this script in /usr/bin and name it something descriptive like startsynergy. Or name it Bucephalus if you want. It worked for Alexander. It's usual to give scripts an extension like .sh, but not necessary. I didn't use an extension. Whatever you name it, use the full name in what follows. ===================================== #!/bin/bash killall synergyc # Kill all previous synergy clients sleep 1 # Wait 1 second /usr/bin/synergyc --name raspberrypi 192.168.1.5 # client name, server ip or name exit 0 # Exit gracefully # use full path to executable if synergy not installed by pkg manager. substitute your client name and server ip. # sunergyc = client, synergys = server ===================================== 2) Make the startsynergy script executable with --> sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/startsynergy 3) Add the following line to ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart @lxterminal --command startsynergy Put this before the line that starts with @xscreensaver or else it will not run the script. Note: There are autostart files at /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart and at /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart. Editing either of these will not run the script. You'll find people on line telling you to use one or the other of those but that is old information. Recent versions of Raspbian have per-user autostart files located in the home directory inside the hidden .config directory at the path in step 3. Use that one. Your script is correct if you can run it with the command startsynergy. The line you added in autostart will then do the same thing at boot - open a terminal and run the command. The terminal closes at the end of the script. Synergy will connect and run without opening the GUI that puts the little circle icon in the taskbar. This is fine for me as, once I've configured synergy the first time with the GUI, I never look at it. If you like the GUI to run, that takes one of about six other methods I've read about but not tried.

    Ok, I decided to go the compile and install route and it works. Here's what I did: tclsh ; uname -a ; # Host: Linux 4.4.0-130-generic #156-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux sudo apt-get install libxtst-dev qtbase5-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev ; set p synergy-core ; set d $env(HOME)/Software/Bin/${p} ; exec >&@stdout git clone https://github.com/symless/${p}.git ; cd ${p} ; git checkout -b v1.10.0-stable v1.10.0-stable ; mkdir build ; cd build ; cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=${d} .. ; make ; make install ;

    I am requesting that we have have support for Arch Packages, so that we don't need to use unofficially support AUR packages that do not configure properly. Symless Supports Windows, MacOS, Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS, Debian Base and even Rasbian. But there is no Arch Based Distrobution Support at all. Bring Proper Support for Arch!!
