Lock screen issues

0 posts in this topic

I'm having an issue (it's always been an issue) with the lock screen disconnecting the server and client. Here are the steps to recreate the issue:


Synergy 1.8.8

Server is Windows 10 x64 Enterprise

Client is Ubuntu 16.04 x64


1. Both machines are logged in and working normally with Synergy

2. Lock Windows screen with Windows Key + L

3. Move mouse to Ubuntu screen (Cursor disappears for some reason but can still click if you know where it is)

4. Cannot move mouse back to Windows (server)

5. Have to stop Synergy from running on the client to get mouse back to Windows

6. Type password to get past Windows login screen

7. Unplug mouse from server and plug in to client :( :(

8. Start Synergy Service and move mouse (if you don't move the mouse first the cursor will still not be visible on the client!!!!)

9. Move the mouse back to Windows and use normally
