Is it possible to get a version compiled for Debian stable?

Specifically, this is what I get on my Debian Stable system:

$ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/mozilla_mah0/Synergy_1.9.0~rc3_amd64.deb
Selecting previously unselected package synergy.
(Reading database ... 242581 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack .../Synergy_1.9.0~rc3_amd64.deb ...
Unpacking synergy (1.9.0~rc3) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of synergy:
 synergy depends on libqt5core5a (>= 5.5.0); however:
  Version of libqt5core5a:amd64 on system is 5.3.2+dfsg-4+deb8u2.
 synergy depends on libstdc++6 (>= 5.2); however:
  Version of libstdc++6:amd64 on system is 4.9.2-10.


...

Should I compile myself?

@Mark I'll look in to this. Debian Stable is definitely on the list of distros to support for v1.9 (For v2.0 however we'll likely only support the latest Ubuntu LTS and Debian 9 (which should be out by then))

Regarding compiling yourself, it's not that difficult, checkout the v1.9 branch, but official instructions aren't frozen yet.

Got it now. Thanks. Instructions aren't super clear, and the interface is real glitchy-- I had to exit out and start over a few times when doing the monitor config. 

Thanks for the assistance!

Adding this here. Ubuntu 16.04

Uploaded logs to Github's Gist.

It crashes immediately here too, Mac OS 10.12.5 (in a Mac Mini)

follows the error Mac shows attached.

P.S. Sorry for the terrible english.

Same. Manual IP, no auto config. I do have SSL enabled though.

Using 1.9rc3 the log has this error code around 10times a second: "[2017-06-20T13:26:06] WARNING: unknown quartz event type: 0x1d"

1.9.0-rc3 does not fix the lag on macOS over wifi for me. It isn't any worse but it definitely isn't better than 1.8.8.

 

I also get an accent-character popup frequently when typing (again, same as with 1.8.8)  as if modifier keys are being pressed when they are not; and frequent missing/skipped typed letters -- that is on the client Mac.

Team,

Synergy Stable or RC do not run under Debian 9. Stable complains about the OPENSSL Libraries and RC 1.9 just wont install.

Just reporting.

Hi Paul,

I tried 1.9.0rc3 in the combination of Ubuntu 16.10 (Kernel 4.9) and macOS Sierra 10.12.5 and could not get it running properly. Synergy would connect the two machines, but as soon as the cursor leaves the server-screen and enters the client screen the cursor gets stuck. Depending on the speed with which I enter the client screen the cursor gets stuck within the first 10 pixels (slow movement) to about 100 pixels (fast movement) from the edge. When moving back into the server screen, the cursor behaves normally again within the server screen.

I tried all sorts of combinations of options (autoconfig, clipboard sharing, Wifi vs LAN etc), but the behaviour remained unchanged. I also switched server/client roles with the same result. The behaviour is very similar to this report...

...alas, my configuration is all different, though.

Went back to 1.8.8 stable and everything is fine again.

I had kind of a similar issue a couple weeks ago (with this RC).  I don't recall the circumstances completely, but I want to say it was something like:

-Windows (as Server) was either at Login or Lock-screen.

-Cursor was on Linux guest,

-Cursor got stuck in last 10-pixels (roughly) of the right-side of Linux Guest.  (note, if I recall, I was able to switch to the Windows host, but didn't unlock it, then switched back to Linux guest and that's when it got stuck??)

-Tried a ton of stuff and couldn't get the cursor / keyboard back into Windows to unlock my PC.  Ended up button mashing my keyboard and it finally released it (note, scroll lock was off already, not sure what I pressed).

Sorry, should have documented this right afterwards like Comey, this might not be 100% right...

Hello All.  Paul Suarez recommended I re-post the issues I'm seeing in Windows 10 on this thread.  Below are links to the posts to "mouse lag" (aka "erratic cursor") and "left mouse click ignored."  Is there an ETA on when these issues will be addressed?

As you will be able to read in the posts, I am using Version 1.9.0-rc3 in Windows 10 Pro Version 1703.

Today I also noticed that copy/paste between client and server stopped working; restarting Synergy brought copy/paste back to life.

I just updated and to be honest the lag feels worse now. When I move my cursor to the client's screen I get about 2 or 3 seconds of lagless behaviour and then it lags like crazy. It might start working fine again 5 or 6 seconds later, then lags again. 

It appears the same can be said of the keyboard (as I'm typing this I am seeing this behaviour).

Using Win10 ethernet for server and MacOS Sierra wifi for client. Both SSL turned off (tried both on and off and no difference). Synergy is allowed through my windows firewall and using no third party firewalls on either machine.

A restart of both server and client seems to have currently fixed my issue. Will report back if it becomes a problem again.

Would love to see an update on this... Still living with massive lag, and connectivity issues.

I decided to just buy a USB switch. The inconsistencies with Synergy are just too much for me to deal with.
