17 posts in this topic

Hi, I just bought synergy for my 2 fedora desktops. I keep getting this error. Everytime, I try to connect. Little heads up, I am running 2 dell optiplex 755s with 4gb of ram and dual cores. The servers a 64bit and the clients a 32bit system. I am hoping this get resolved. It's driving me crazy! >:(

Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

Alright the server machine and client are both ethernet. The clients 32bit and servers 64bit. Both are optiplex 755 sf. Here's the pics you asked for also sorry for taking. A long time to reply, I was really busy working out and handling a bit of business.

WARNING: unrecognised client name

This error relates to either a typo on the added screen name on your server's configuration interface or not adding a screen for the client machine at all.

Please refer to Getting started with Synergy knowledge base article for steps on how to do an initial configuration.

Alright I got it up and running. The only issue, I am having with it is. I can't switch screens. I even setup hotkeys for it. I keep getting this error.

 WARNING: can't leave screen

When you say you can't switch screen @LinuxDude, do you mean you can't do it by moving your cursor to the direction where you have your other machine is set up to? Also, please post a screenshot of the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.
