    Why do you guys insist on making everything automatic when that's clearly a point of frustration for so many of us? I was eagerly waiting for this update since I bought Synergy 2 last December, only to realize that proxy authentication and configuration is not supported (something which I think you should mention somewhere in your page, seeing as how a lot of people rely on proxy functionality, instead of baiting unsuspecting buyers). When I contacted support about this they said the proxy support was going to be released in a few days, and they asked me if I could wait a bit instead of getting a refund. I took their advice since I genuinely thought the feature was coming. It's been more than 4 months and of course I can't get a refund now, for something which I literally haven't had a chance to even try out. Now I see that proxy support is finally released (at least for Windows).... but what is my surprise when I get the following error: [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:46] debug: connected to background service [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:46] debug: saying hello to background service [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:48] warning: version check disabled, skipping [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:48] error: Reply status code: 0 [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:48] error: failed to check update: reply has error: Proxy requires authentication <<<<<---------------------------- [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:48] error: Reply status code: 0 [ Config ] [2018-04-26T15:08:51] error: Reply status code: 0 And I can't even touch the configuration because you insist on making everything automatic! (even if said automation doesn't work whatsoever). More and more it starts to look as if I just threw 40 dollars down the drain. I've been trying really hard to support you and be patient as I have a few friends that recommended you and I believe that as developers we should be more supportive of each other, as opposed to some big company. But this is getting ridiculous. Why is it that you keep on insisting on crippling your power users and prevent them from actually taking advantage of your really cool (apparently) software you created? Is there any meaningful timeline that I can expect so that I can finally enjoy my purchase? or will this be one of those features that will never get implemented and I'll be left here hanging with my useless purchase? Do you guys actually care about this or not? Because so far it seems as if this is a really low priority item since you keep coming with excuses and non-working solutions instead of actually addressing the issue we care most about: being able to configure the proxy settings, which shouldn't be something terribly difficult if you just stopped trying to make everything so "seamless" and instead focus on actually making it work and THEN making it seamless. As a last hail mary... is there a way I could still get a refund for this? I'm really frustrated by now and would like to put this behind. Ideally by being able to use my Synergy 2 Pro, but if not, then at least getting my money back so I can go buy something that does work. Thanks

    The lack of being able to tweak settings or even get into any semblance of a settings page/window like version 1 had does seem to be a step backwards. I was a happy user of Synergy 1 Pro which allowed me to tweak certain settings and configuration knobs but since version 2 it seems like you have decide that Pro is no longer an option and are treating all your users as simpletons. Who is it great for that everything is managed be the "Synergy Cloud"? Certainly not the end user since we have no access to said cloud.

    I am a huge fan of this product. I bought into the 2.0 when it was first available and was a little disheartened when a paid product was reverted to "beta". I understood and didn't ask for a refund. That being said, I really have hoped for way more communication on the beta progress or some sort of beta upgrades etc. Are there any communications on this product that can be shared? Is there a release roadmap etc? signed Loyal but frustrated

    The current Synergy 1.9 package for Ubuntu (synergy_1.9.1.stable~b327+2a0225c1_amd64.deb) unfortunately depends on libcurl3. Many other packages in Ubuntu (the most important of which, to me at least, are the curl binary itself and cmake) depend on libcurl4. libcurl4 conflicts with libcurl3 and cannot be installed simultaneously, which means I have to uninstall synergy and libcurl3. I'm pretty sure other developers will encounter the same problem. Can we get a re-spin of the package that depends on libcurl4 instead of libcurl3?

    I asked roughly the same question 3 months ago:
  6. 4 points
    Recently we surveyed a group of our users with a simple question: Should Synergy 2 be considered stable or beta? In November of last year, we officially released Synergy 2 as stable. We knew there were a few minor bugs but assumed we could fix them within a couple of months. Sadly, it became apparent that these bugs were not so small nor easy to fix. So with very careful consideration, we've made the decision to redeclare Synergy 2 a beta product. When will Synergy 2 be stable? We're going to leave this up to you to decide. As we make updates and enhancements, we'll continue to poll users so that you can tell us when you think it's stable. We've also decided not to ask this question until after we've re-introduced the missing features from Synergy 1, which could extend the beta period by 12-18 months. Reply to this thread if you have any questions about this decision. Update: Update 2: @Kelvin Tran also posted bout Synergy 1.

    I think the "failed to create quartz event tap" is linked to privacy permissioning issues. I had this (both machines running Mac OSX Mojave) and fixed by going to System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy and unchecking and then rechecking the box allowing Synergy to control the computer. The second I did that the connection worked and Synergy is now ticking along nicely. Good luck!

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

    If you are posting about any of the following issues/concerns, please note that the response you will most likely get from the community is that these features are coming in Synergy 2.1. Without further ado... - Less reliant online mode - "Tinker-y" Settings panel - Removing and renaming a computer on the grid - A more polished uninstallation script - One-click updating process - Making the window size and elements dynamically adjustable - Tray icon for quick access to settings - Offline mode (YES!) - Better UI icons and labels - Better OS support (older versions of OS X (now named macOS), etc.) - More reliable cloud - Minor glitches and crashes (ex. with Chrome crashing on activation and Firefox not working in some instances) _________________________________________________________________________________________ The following changes will be exclusive to Synergy 2 Pro users. - Drag and drop file support - Copy and paste file support (ex. Ctrl + C a Word document and Ctrl + V on the other system) Note for this that you CAN copy and paste text and images on your clipboard. Just not entire files. - Synchronization of locked status and lock screens - Wake-on-LAN (magic packet, wake one system to wake all) - Screensaver Sync (similar to Lock Screen Sync) - Audio Sharing (share audio output between speakers of all systems) - Different computer profiles (ex. one profile for surrounding systems at work and another for the home) - Wrap around edges of computer layout - Key swapping - ex. mapping Ctrl to Cmd, etc. And as an added bonus, note that developer support (something similar to an API) will be added in Synergy 2.2 or 2.3! If what you want isn't on this list, go ahead and post it in the "Feature Ideas" forum and a Synergy team member will review your suggestion. EDIT: 2 things to note. | 1.) Please note that some of these feature suggestions have already been added in whole or in part to dot releases of Synergy 2! | 2.) Please note that as Synergy 2 is put back into beta, you will see a lot more of these features be added in a stable form before it is put back into deployment as the stable branch of Synergy.

    Concur. They’ve released a feature incomplete “alpha” version that doesn’t work a good chunk of the time, and above that, they have focused on features that their customers aren’t asking for (like zero comfig). Trying to say proxy support doesn’t need any comfiguration is ludicrous. Proxy setup often needs a myraid of configuration, like servernames, ports, authentication, etc. seems someone had an idea one day “Hey, let’s make it zero config” and since then it’s been damn the torpedos, full speed ahead!

    As of version 2.0.10 (on Mac) I've got nothing. It had been working irregularly. When it would quit, I would bang around blindly in the UI, and usually it would come back. This time - nothing. Often just dragging the screens apart and letting them re-connect would get it going again. But not this time. I can understand the desire to keep things like proxy settings and configuration hidden, but there is an "interface" to this thing which is completely undocumented. If you're already familiar with the old product, you probably understand that the two boxes allow you to control screen placement. If you're not, then god help you, because they are not going to explain it. But aside from that: what does the little white dot mean on the bottom of one of the screens? Why does it change sometimes when I click on it - and sometimes changes by itself? What does it mean when there is a progress bar on one of the screens? What does it mean when the screen is green vs. grey? These things are not "automatic." The user must interact with this screen to configure the software. You're clearly trying to convey some information to the user. But it's not explained anywhere. Trying to use the product is like trying to solve the riddle of a mysterious artifact left by an ancient civilization. But we don't feel anger at the ancient Babylonians, because they're dead, and we imagine they might have explained their artifact, if they could. And we didn't pay them for the artifact. But you're not dead, and we've paid you a little something. So you must understand why people are upset as years roll by and there is no communication beyond "it's supposed to be automatic." Neither on the things that are supposed to be automatic, nor on things that are clearly not automatic. I can understand that software is hard, because I do that every day. But surely, over the course of a couple of years, you can put together 20 sentences that explain what this UI does, and what the symbols on it mean?

    Whoah. That new UI! What does it do? How does it work? Who knows? Despite some frustration with things being borked and needing uninstalls/registry cleanups/cloud logins, etc (the link below is an essential reference) I did manage to get everything working. I even managed to get a connection from my weirdly networked machine that I didn't figure I'd be able to get working until there was a manual settings file. The new UX is unsettling. The windows tray / mac menubar helper doesn't have any way of showing what's going on...you have to open a different app. The Synergy App looks fine when things are working but provides no affordances for figuring out what you are supposed to try next if it's jammed. There are definitely some feature regressions (yep. already on the roadmap.). The Beta process was also long and frustrating. I'm actually back to Synergy after 6 months happy (but struggling) with a different software keyboard-mouse sharing 'ware. It was way better than the last beta I tried, and had some neat features I wouldn't mind seeing in Synergy. All of that said. Synergy 2 is BRILLIANT! WONDERFUL! Thank you so much! 1) This type of software is *so vital* to my happiness during the day. I need it so much! I know how all of the frustrate people in this forum feel, since it is probably just as vital to them. I also see how incredibly difficult just keeping keyboard/mouse sharing has become over the last decade. Remotely pwning the console is something 2018 operating systems resist very actively. You deserve more than I've paid you just for keeping the software live through so many breaking OS changes. Thank you! 2) When I figured out the trick to switch which computer was the controller, and popped my master keyboard/mouse from host to host, I was just FLOORED. Not only can my mouse swing from screen to screen and control every computer at my battlestation, but I can switch to a different machine and control all the others from there? SO HAPPY! Thank you! Somehow it feels like getting thousands of dollars of extra computer power..but for $15. This is such an impressive achievement, and fits so nicely in the control of my screen layouts. (Being able to control this switch from the tray icon, and having a command-line way of affecting control <something I can control with AutoHotKey or Keyboard Maestro?> would be very nice too?) 3) I've just spent 2 months at work with a team of 10, delivering the very smallest piece of software I can imagine. I know the whole forum is on you to hurry up with <insert pet feature>, and I can't wait either, but all software takes time, and few of us have any clue how much you folks are doing and with how few resources. Thank you! For reference, one of my other utilities that does a little tiny (technically hard) task that I have trouble living without was developed, dropped, passed to a new company, abandoned, open sourced, abandoned, redeveloped from scratch, and now is available in 2 forms: 1) old, broken, unsupported on an up-to-date OS and 2) $100. Did I mention software is hard and takes time (and money)? You guys are doing great work and at such a reasonable cost. Please keep going, because I'd ache if we lost maintenance on Synergy. Thank you! So, yeah. It was a bit of a challenge getting up to date with 2 and getting it running. I've got all sorts of peanut-gallery suggestions and demands. Sure, I'm not 100% happy and there are things I miss about the older versions. But mostly: WOW! This is great! It's an ambitious, real effort to take an essential utility and modernize it (operating systems, networks, and usage has changed a little bit since 1996, hasn't it?). I see a lot of complaints around here, so I wanted to spend a few minutes and thank you for the huge good you've accomplished. -Josh

    Hi All Just ran into this exact same problem under the new Bionic Bever Beta 18.04. (Running KDE as well.) I struggled for a little while as Firefox was the default application that the sign in web page was appearing in. What I discovered is that I had to go into default applications and manually set me web browser to be firefox. It was grayed out with the default option of letting the type of URL define the application. Once I switched to manually setting everything to open in firefox it was all good!!. Hopefully someone is writing instructions on how to install in the different environments

    Synergy 2: How to uninstall and reinstall
  15. 3 points
    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

    I couldn't find any information at https://symless.com/synergy/release-notes which is where I always go when I see a new release. If there isn't already some information about the new release beta (v2.0.12 b), I assume it is coming soon. In case information has been released, however, could someone please link to it? I'd gladly help and test the beta, but knowing roughly what changes have been made first would be nice.

    Dude, for starters, it ain't "my" product. Secondly, just saying it doesn't work makes no sense since it does work for lots of people. If you have a particular problem, somebody could probably help you, but just complaining it doesn't work will get you nowhere.

    I just wanted to confirm, that I was having the exact same issue between two machines running Windows 10 April update 1803. Upon reading this forum post, I tested a few different scaling configurations. I found that so long as the server display that connects to the client display is scaled to 100% then it works. In the attached photo the 4K displays are connected to the server, the 3K display is a laptop acting as a client. So long as the server display with the * is set to 100% scaling, then Synergy works normally, however if it is anything more than 100% then the mouse switches to the client, the mouse cursor disappears, and it will not switch back to server while synergy services are running. Interestingly the displays without the asterisks can be set to any scaling without issue. I was running 2.0.10 before the April windows 10 update, with the 4K displays scaled to 150% and the 3K display set to 175%, I have used most of the synergy 2.0.X versions without any issue like this. The April 1803 update definitely seems to be the culprit.

    Still testing this solution (still using 1.9.1), but here's what I did to reconcile Synergy with libcurl4 on Ubuntu 18.04: Downloaded the appropriate Synergy package. Unarchived the package, then unarchived the resulting control.tar.gz, all so I can edit the control file: $ ar x synergy_1.9.1.stable_b327+2a0225c1_amd64.deb $ tar zxvf control.tar.gz $ vim control Modify the control file, removing libcurl3 with libcurl4 (>= 7.58.0) Package: synergy Version: 1.9.1.stable~b327+2a0225c1 Architecture: amd64 Maintainer: Symless <[email protected]> Installed-Size: 2591 Depends: libavahi-compat-libdnssd1 (>= 0.6.16), libc6 (>= 2.14), libcurl4 (>= 7.58.0), libgcc1 (>= 1:3.0), libqt5core5a Section: utils Priority: optional Homepage: https://symless.com/synergy Description: Keyboard and mouse sharing solution Synergy allows you to share one mouse and keyboard between multiple computers.

    I'd like to second this, not having read down to the bottom of the thread yet... I purchased v2 at 2.0.8, which did not work between my 2 macs v10.13.3(share-server) & v.10.11.3(client). I filed a support ticket which didn't really help until v2.0.9 came out... and nothing worked. I completely uninstalled and lo and behold, v 1.9 worked fine(relatively) and I could see the logs and manage things. v.2.0.10 came out and it worked for a day! then I undocked my MBP which I share my keyboard/mouse from. I get the spinning beachball when I hover the mouse/trackpad pointer over the menubar icon, so don't know how to fix this.... I've been a happy customer for years, but I'm very upset that v.2 just doesn't work consistently.

    Just a simple one, currently left clicking the new tray icon in Windows does nothing, its just right click to disable/enable Synergy. Why not make double clicking the icon open the main Synergy config Window?

    Unfortunately, close but no cigar. I´ve tried several times since ver. 2.0 was launched and my two Mac computers, both on the same wired network, same configuration, seeing each other with ping, working flawlessly with Synergy 1.9.1, refuse to connect. I´ve installed the "server" and it remains stuck at the "second step: install synergy on another computer". I do so, but the other computer just shows a dark screen icon and nothing happens. And to add insult to injury, the "minimalist" design does not allow you to see what´s going on, aside of the sending logs feature. For the time being, I will stick with the old version...

    Even though some features are not available yet, I've found that since the launch of Synergy 2 that the Symless team has continuously worked to improve on its reliability and efficacy. My personal philosophy is that this is a small company trying to make, what I consider, a big difference and every bit of support towards them contributes to the development of those features that we're awaiting on.

    Hi! Based on the number of positive reactions your post has gained, it's clear that this is something a number of Synergy users are wondering about. I, myself, can easily see myself standing in your position, so it's absolutely understandable why you'd feel this way. However, Symless has been operating on "maintenance mode", per se. They lost a significant amount of their software developers and as such, have been reprioritizing certain aspects of the business like hiring personnel over the development of the project. But, that changes soon! Symless recently found 6 talented software devs to help develop the project. With that being said, you should be seeing some changes come your way very, very soon! Sorry for the wait, though. It might be a little more though. Have any issues been present for you? Thanks! https://twitter.com/Synergy_App/status/1087410009359683585

    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 ..

    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!!

    I completely agree and relate to each of these points, except that I have been able to autoconfigure Synergy 2.0.x between two Windows machines, but each 1.8 problem Mikko has listed is still a problem in Syn 2. Also, I think this was a good decision Nick. Definitely a step in the right direction. Lastly, I want to emphasize one of Mikko's points: "If Synergy doesn't get their act together soon, I'll make the switch. I really want you guys to succeed though. Please just fix the basic features." The AltGr issue is such a huge pain if you're a programmer, and I can't understand how that could be hard to fix. Give us the ability to rebind the key in a config file. Doesn't have to look pretty, just give us a quick temporary workaround. That would make me so happy. This isn't a "bug" that "happens for some users seemingly randomly", it is a misaligned feature that affects everyone with certain (if not all) AltGr keyboard layouts (European, Nordic etc).

    As a long time synergy user (and cheerleader), I am sorry to say that I too have been tempted by the promise of 2.0, only to give up and downgrade because it does not work on my setup. The complete lack of configuration and user feedback in 2.0 is extremely frustrating and just plain bad design. There no reason to leave the user guessing as to why a program is not working. I can't believe I have to write this in 2018! After my last attempt, I decided get off the upgrade/downgrade roller coaster. I have moved on and installed another product, which by the way, has configuration screens, etc.

    Yes, you will have to modify the v1.9 package as well. I was unable to get Synergy2 working (2018-05-07). See the following blog posts: - https://symless.com/forums/topic/5654-synergy-2010-not-working-on-ubuntu-1804/ - https://symless.com/forums/topic/5634-reverting-to-synergy-1xx/ So, these are the instructions for Synergy 1.9 on Bionic Beaver (with libcurl4) - Install fakeroot to maintain permissions while modifying the deb `sudo apt install fakeroot` - Instructions and explanation of using dpkg with fakeroot are on stack exchange: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/138188/easily-unpack-deb-edit-postinst-and-repack-deb) - Login to Synergy and download version 1: https://symless.com/synergy/downloads - In the downloads dir, extract the package and modify it: (Replace gedit with kate or vim .. whatever) fakeroot sh -c ' \ mkdir tmp; \ dpkg-deb -R synergy_1.*.stable~*.deb tmp; \ gedit tmp/DEBIAN/control; ' - Edit the control file to replace the libcurl3 version with `libcurl4 (>= 7.58.0)` - Save the control file and exit the editor - Turn it back into a deb and remove the tmp dir fakeroot sh -c 'dpkg-deb -b tmp/ synergy_1~fixed.deb; rm -rf tmp' - Install the package, and have apt install the dependencies: sudo dpkg -i synergy_1~fixed.deb sudo apt install -f

    I've used version 1 off and on for years. Love it! I installed version 2.0.10 and wondered where my configuration options have gone??!?! I understand the need to make it extremely simple for some users but there should be at least an advanced button some where. How do I know encryption is turned on? I'm sure its on by default but how do I prove that to my security team if I decide to use this at work? I guess I'm suppose to cross my fingers that it's all working like it should.

    I had a similar issue with a single Win 10 computer and a Macbook. The Macbook showed green after installing and launching, but the Windows computer was grey. There were some errors in the console (launch by pressing "~"). I tried multiple uninstall/reinstalls with no success. What worked for me was uninstalling and then deleting the registry entries on my Windows machine: Uninstall Synergy Press windows key and search "run", type "regedit" to launch Look for HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Symless (or Synergy) and right click to delete. I think these were from previous versions that caused an issue. Reinstall Synergy and relaunch After reinstalling 2.0.1 it automatically connected with my Mac and showed both as green. Now to figure out how to map the windows key on my Macbook..

    I keep trying Synergy2, and it keeps disappointing me. It never detects other machines, even on a local, wired network with only the 2 computers I'm trying to connect on it. There continues to be zero process feedback of any sort in the application window. There are still no options anywhere other than "enable" and "disable", which do nothing at all that I can tell. I'm not an expert or anything, but it seems like you should probably wait to hide all the configuration options in favor of automagical configuration until the thing actually does something other than show a completely useless window with no options or information whatsoever. Maybe also leave off applying the "stable" tag to a version until it is something other than a process that draws a window and uses memory.

    I am all about complaints. Let's hear em. But if you want tem to go away you have to frame it in a manner that gives people what they need to remove said complaint. Here is what does NOT help... Silent reversion: can't know how bad of an impact a problem is causing if people just roll back and say nothing Wounded dog: Complain loudly but will not give data to help the problem be located Just venting: This helps in bars with a beer in your hand, but not in making a product better Here is what DOES help... Details: If you feel as if you are over-explaining then you are probably right on par. Let what is not needed get weeded out. Topography: Tell how you are connected Environment: What is running on your system. My work and gaming systems have different things that cause different problems. We all want this to work. If you find an issue, don't let it go until you at least see it recognized and ranked in importance. And if you are asked for more give more until they tell you to stop.

    Hi there Samuel Tønnessen. I just wanted to give you an update on your advice re Bluetooth personal area network as I had a similar issue of 2 devices at work... one 'non-work' and one 'work' device on different networks. I have followed your advice and it works !! Thank you very much indeed. I have synergy running and connected via the Bluetooth PAN and its brilliant. Actually feels a bit quicker than on my previous works wifi. Simon

    Dear Synergy community, even if I'm a very satisfied Synergy User for many, many years (must be >5 years), I have never posted something in the forum. However, today I thought it is time to write this post about an issue with the French grave accent (è). On my Server computer I can easily create this character by pressing Shift + "´"-key followed by the "e"-key. However, this doesn't work on my client PC. No character will be put on the screen, when I press this combination. The "e" with the accent in the other direction (é; acute accent) works perfect on the Server and Client, but not the accent grave. Is this a known issue and how can it be fixed? My Computer configuration is the following: Server: Windows 10 Home 64 Bit Client: Windows 7 Professional, 64 Bit Keyboard: German keyboard Synergy Version: 1.8.6-stable Many thanks for your support and best regards Markus

    It takes a little work, but it is possible to use Synergy over VPN without split-tunneling. Here is what I did. 1) Register yourself a free (or paid if you don't want 30-day nags) dynamic DNS address (DDNS) from a place like dynDNS or no-ip 2) Register for the Pro version of Synergy to get that sweet, sweet SSL security. You're going to be opening some pin holes, so best to keep the connection secure while in transit 3) Select a non-default port for Synergy to use - again security precaution From you home network router: 4) Create a DHCP reservation or assign a static IP for your server system 5) Create a port forwarding rule on the router that will forward all traffic destined for the port you determined in step 3 to the IP to determined in step 4 (source should be any IP, any port) From Server system 6) Install Synergy if you haven't already done so, select server, and register your Pro key from step 2 7) On the Settings menu, enter the port number to determined in step 3, check the "Use SSL Security" box and click OK 8) Click Configure Server and then add your client screens as you normally would From home router or server system 9a) If router supports automatic dynamic DNS updates, configure your router to update the address you registered in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address -or- 9b) Install the DNS update client from the service used in step 1 so your home external IP is tied to your DDNS address From your client system(s) 10) Install Synergy and select Client 11) For "Server IP," enter the DDNS address you created in step 1 (don't use auto config) 12) Make sure to set the same port number from step 3 in the Settings screen 13) Watch the magic happen I think that about covers it...

    Also, you can use "Scroll Lock" to temporarily tell Synergy to not switch screens while playing.
