Ubuntu 14.04 Synergy keeps shutting down

4 posts in this topic

Hello, Server on Windows 10, client on Ubuntu 14.04 Works well, until switching screens after a long pause. Then, client shuts down. Swap cables, click on the synergy app, and oh, lets wake up again. Rinse and repeat. Any suggestions?

I seem to be experiencing a similar issue with debian and Windows 10. Every now and then it segfaults on me: [code]Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault. 0x000000010001fffd in ??

I get similar here, but with Win7. The linux client crashes so often, that I have left a mouse plugged into it, and leave the client GUI up on one of the workspaces at all times. The majority of the time, the linux client has not registered that the connection has been lost, and other times it reports 'server is dead'. In either case, if I toggle the STOP/START button on the GUI and I am up and running again. Probably not related, but I also cannot manage to share clipboard contents across machines more than once. I have to force stop/start the server for it to work again.... once.

The Linux client either crashes or like Tehrasha stated it reports the server as "dead" Are there any updates to this? Can we expect a new version soon or should I start using an alternative ?

So far, so good. Updated both machines to v1.7.6 and have had a blissful error free 4hrs. :) Not a single crash or dead server event. Even the shared clipboard has been working correctly both ways. *fingers crossed* EDIT: Update 3 solid days without failure. Looks like whatever the issue was, is fixed.
