  • The new minimal user interface is probably fine if things "just work" but there are no clues that "`" gives a log or that F12 will force a device to be master. I really think you need to give some more visual clues to make it easier to find diagnostic information and configuration stuff.
  • On the subject of F12 a number of my Ubuntu machines use F12 as a hotkey. As such I can't use F12 to force that computer to attempt to be master. I mouse/menu operated way of doing that would be appreciated.

I have to agree with the lack of clues of tilde and F12 and even Scroll Lock, the ability to do these tasks with other keys (configurable) or mouse would be appreciated.

I have finally got my main 4 machines talking to each other.  It looks like it was: part firewall (not totally sure on that because I've never had problems with synergy regarding that before); part subnet related; and part the linux packaging issues mentioned elsewhere on this forum.

These issues will be fixed in beta5, which is due in about 4-5 weeks.

Finally do I take it that Synergy is becoming closed source?

Partially, yes.

Thanks for the feedback!
