"@" / AT sign on danish keyboard Windows > OSX

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a rather annoying issue running Synergy Server on Windows and Client on OSX, I have Danish keyboard layout on both machines. The "@" that is "ALT GR" + "*" on the keyboard, doesnt map correctly through Synergy, it becomes "0". No matter what I try, I even tried to remap through karabine, but nothing seems to work. And it is incrediblely hard to search for problems with "@", so sorry if any solutions already exists in the forum. :-) Do you have any suggestions? It makes it kinda hard to use seriously when a vital character is unusable. Best regards René

Hello René, Is the issue happening on both server and client? Which version of Windows, and which version of OS X? The techniques for re-mapping keys are different for Windows vs. Mac. What is the exact name of the keyboard setting in each (affected) computer's OS? What is the Language setting in the Synergy GUI on each system, in "Edit" -> "Settings"? There may be just a mis-match of language settings between OS and Synergy. Have you checked that the characters print properly when not using Synergy (with directly-connected keyboard? - Brian

Also note that we may need to know the make/model of your physical keyboard. The keys/characters tend to work best when the language setting in the OS as well as Synergy (on each system) is set to the same language for which the keyboard is designed (or any language for which the keyboard is totally compatible). - Brian

I have exactly the same problem. The PC is a Dell XPS 8900 with Danish keyboard. The MAC is a MacBook Pro w. Danish keyboard. It is synergy 1.7.6 on both computers. Tried 1.8.0. Didn't change anything. I think its quite a new problem. I've used synergy for a very long time, and I didn't notice the problem before. -- Eigil Krogh Sorensen

I think this is a problem with keyboard layouts in general, the way keys are sent from windows to mac. My keyboard layout worked fine on versions 1.3.7-1.3.8, but no longer works on 1.7.6. It does work from windows -> ubuntu, however

Same on german keyboard.

Environment example:
Ubuntu64(full german standard installation) as Server, Windows10x64(full german standard installation) as Client.

So this seems to be kind of a general problem regardless of the operating system.
At least some advice to fix this by our own would be helpful.
Sadly this is definteley a show stopper! Though you can't even write an e-mail, serious programming? you can't even think of with this kind of failure.

Sorry, editing on first post is not possible anymore. Here is some additional information:

Failure environment example:
Ubuntu64(full german standard installation) as Server, Windows10x64Pro(full german standard installation) as Client.

Ubuntu 16.04, LANG=de_DE.UTF-8, Linux 4.4.0-101-generic x86_64

For some stupid reason(maybe it's me) i can't find any exact version information at least on linux version of synergy.
It must be Synergy version 1.8.8 on both ends i think
