Android Client would be amazing to control mobile device sitting on desk stand.

I use Unified Remote https://www.unifiedremote.com/ to control the PC screen from an Android, and it is possible to use multiple Android devices concurrently each running the application. Unified Remote and Synergy are not compatible with each other, however. It would be good if the functions of Unified Remote were to be incorporated in Synergy or, failing that, for the two applications to be used at the same time.

Bung, I prefer synergy :)

Here is the the one fixed for android L M N O. I fixed it. As far as the samsung goes I could fix it in a day or so if there was a bounty on it :)

Tried to message you privately but it won't let me, do you need a rooted device for that?

It still requires a rooted devices, Since I do not have any devices that are not rooted and I rewrite and build a custom rom  for them. It is not on my todo list.

Hi ,

I downloaded the package in my ROOTED Samsung Note 2014 tablet , but I was not able to install your app to test .

I opened a android terminal and type adb install synergy.apk ( at same directory where Synergy.apk is , of course ) It did not finish the install . The error is : device not found . I am new at android root experience , but have a lot of linux experience , can you help me ?

+1 for Synergy for Android & Dex. It is definitely needed.

After getting frustrated with a buggy USB KVM I decided to eliminate it out of the mix. I feel like this is the perfect setup for now until we get Synergy.

Fast Mode Switching USB/Bluetooth K/M
Keyboard:https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/product/g613-wireless-mechanical-gaming-keyboard
USB: https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/product/g603-lightspeed-wireless-gaming-mouse
This allows for independent fast switching. It also removes the touch pad function from the screen.

I use this for touch interface replacement: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CX85I8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

This mini keyboard comes in handy as well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07C1MX4QP/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have had Synergy for years and it had been a great companion for working on the go. The ability to link up both my laptop and Windows tablet to share input and clipboard increased my digital workspace greatly! It would most certainly a very big bonus if there can be an android version where I can substitute my Windows tablet for a much bigger screen and less power hungry android tablet! +1 Vote from me too! 

For DeX, my ideal mode would be to have the host on it and run clients on tablets! So in any case, please give me android client!

+1

Clipboard sync would be really nice - but ability to control even my Android phone would also be great as I usually have it near my PC.

Can't afford a new Samsung device to try out DeX (i.e. Linux on DEx) - however - for quite some time I've been running MaruOS on my Nexus 5 handset - through to a SlimPort adaptor to HDMI monitor.

MaruOs works as a "chroot" Linux environment under Android 6.x - with a "full" XFCE desktop environment (ostensibly Debian Jessie on ARM).

I successfully got Synergy 1.4 client installed and working in this setup (with a Synergy 1.6x server), i.e. on MaruOS on my Nexus 5 (hammerhead).

I have no idea how DeX works...  but I'm only interested in running a full Linux desktop over DEX anyway - perhaps one day if Samsung keep it going...  probably the only reason I'd go for another Samsung device would be if I could run a Linux desktop on my phone handset (don't need to see it on the handset screen) - but it's limited to Note 9 and one of the tabs...

Not just a Note 9 and Tab 4... you can get it on the S9 variants as well.
