13 posts in this topic

Mac server v1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2
Linux (fedora 26) client v1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2

whenever i try to move the cursor from mac to linux i get the below error:
[2017-08-04T15:37:16] WARNING: cursor may not be visible

Additionally, no keystrokes were sent either.

Log below (there was a couple client restarts):

From reading your logs, it would seem that Synergy is indeed registering your action of moving the mouse cursor from one system to the other. The warning that you're experiencing is completely normal. As Synergy has to do this through Wi-Fi in most cases, it has to expect latency and it's just warning you of that. Even with Ethernet, there is still a tiny bit of latency that you have to prepare for.

Are you even seeing the mouse cursor or are you just concerned about the warning in the logs? If you're not seeing the mouse cursor, try clicking around for a couple of seconds. If not, come back here and the community can help you troubleshoot further.

Unfortunately neither mouse nor keyboard actions are being registering on the client.  the screen will wake up but that is about all.  The only thing i can think of (at the moment) is that selinux is preventing synergy from working properly.  I will try to disable that next time i'm at the office.

Hi everyone! Can you try using v1.9.0rc3 from the tagged thread below? Please let us know how it works after trying that version.

Also, i forgot to mention that disabling SELinux didn't change anything

I have version 1.10.1-stable-894124e and I experience the 'WARNING: cursor may not be visible'. My cursor completely disappeared and I have to restart both of my computers. This is not good.
