Keyboard not working - Mac Server, Windows Client

14 posts in this topic

Using the latest build of synergy for both macOS and Windows 10, I can only get my Macbook cursor movements to send to the Windows client, but my Macbook keyboard doesn't send anything to the windows machine with the exception of the command key. When I press the command key, the windows start menu opens. But any other command related shortcut (Command+V for example) will paste text on the Macbook even when my mouse cursor is controlling the Windows machine.

 Macbook Pro 15 inch, 2017: macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Windows 10 Home

Both using Synergy 1.8.8

Hi all I am having the same issue.  Is there a work around for this?  High Sierra 10.3.3 and Windows 10 (latest). Mouse works but Keyboard is a no go.

User support was zero help for me. Just told me to upgrade my version which is not the problem. Issue is coming because of permissions to the application.

I found a work around by doing the following in the terminal of the Mac server system:

sudo open -a Synergy

Sometimes the keys get messed up and won't go the the windows client again, just close it out and re-issue the command in the terminal. So far this has worked for me.

I have the same issue. I solved this problem by changing Keyboard Preference "Use F1,F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" and it worked. However, It is not working after a bug that make my mouse curser unable to move from the centre of the monitor. I restarted the program on both PC and Mac, and my solution is not working since then ( the mouse is still working fine and only Command key is working ). My synergy version is 1.8 and I believe the its not the solution since JeffreyC still has the same problem. Thanks

The funny part it was working great last week. I will remove the software and reinstall and see if anything changes. I didn't try mac to mac, the issue I'm experiencing is mac to pc.
