Can't install Synergy

4 posts in this topic

Hi there. My mac Synergyserver stopped running - it simply would not recognize the configuration file anymore, although it had been running without problems for more than a month. I decided to delete Synergy and reinstall it, but alas - one can simply not reinstall it.

When i run the .dmg the icon behaves strangely, and is difficult to "hit". A long press does the trick, and after the Synergy icon is highlighted i can dubble click to install. It hangs a bit - and then crashes.

What can i do? I tried cleaning up all synergy files from the terminal - didn't work. I also tried installing the previous version i had - the 1.8.7 version, but same story..

Hi there,

If you would like to remove Synergy from your Mac you can try these commands:

rm -rf /Applications/Synergy.app

and

rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.http-synergy-foss-org.Synergy.plist

Make sure you run those commands as root, if you are not sure just add sudo at the beginning of each line, like this:

sudo rm -rf /Applications/Synergy.app

Let us know the outcome

Ok i tried this. The installer icon no longer acts unresponsive - but installer still crashes. Would you like me to attach details from the crash?
