Using MacOS server and windows client without mouse switch

1 post in this topic

I didn't know Synergy has forum, so I've filed issue on github page. (Pasting it as is below)

 

Server OS: macOS Sierra

Client OS: Windows 8

 

If I go through configure interactively on macOS server and setup Synergy, computer switching works perfectly.

However I want to use keyboard key combo to switch computer (Playing game on windows, turning around gets cursor to macOS)

 

In configure interactively -> Hotkeys. I defined: (Using Alt and Shift cause they seem unchanged between 2 OS)

Hotkeys: keystroke (Alt+Shift+Left) Actions: switchToScreen (windowsComputer)

Hotkeys: keystroke (Alt+Shift+Right) Actions: switchToScreen (macOSComputer)

This doesn't switch screens as expected (And cursor switching still remains on)

 

So I've tried using from configuration file and file looks like:

section: screens

 

macOSComputer:

windowsComputer:

 

end

 

section: aliases

 

macOSComputer:

windowsComputer:

 

end

 

section: links

 

macOSComputer:

windowsComputer:

 

end

section: options

 

screenSaverSync=false

relativeMouseMoves = true

 

keystroke(Alt+Shift+Left) = switchToScreen(windowsComputer)

keystroke(Alt+Shift+Right) = switchToScreen(macOSComputer)

 

end

 

This gets cursor switching disabled but still no switching with keybinds.

bump?

Can someone at least confirm if my configuration is correct, if yes I'll follow up on issue on github.
