v.1.7.3 - Paste fail between 2 Debian "jessie" Linux systems

4 posts in this topic

Running Synergy 1.7.3 on two Debian "jessie" Linux systems, "swamphen" (server) and "pheasant" (client). Paste always works from the server to the client, but only very occasionally from the client to the server. Below is a fragment from the server's log.

I am having the same issue. Seems to work when I restart both computers. However that is quite annoying to consistently have to restart.

Hi, this is one of the things being worked on for 1.7.4. If any of you can try out the nightly that would be really cool. Nothing really big changed, just several little bugs are being squashed. I hear things like this are going away very fast. Find it over in the nightly downloads: [url]http://synergy-project.org/nightly?filter=1.7.4[/url]. I would love to hear how it goes. @Robin: Your screen names are awesome. My hostnames are so descriptive... and so boring!

Robin, Kurt, and Jeff, It would be helpful to get some more details about the clipboard issues. Some issues have a simple work-around, others have been fixed already in the latest nightly version, still others might be solved for the 1.7.4 version. I don't know enough about your issues to have much insight, be here are some workarounds that often work: - turning off clipboard manager programs such as Glipper/Glippy/Klipper) - copy/pasting first into a plain-text app on same system, then copying that content to paste into other system - disabling SSL - after copying, moving mouse to destination system then back to origin system then to destination system again before paste - if a system is in elevated mode, running not-elevated (or vice-versa) I hope you will let us know the answers to these questions: - exact behavior when something crashes/doesn't work - does Synergy continue working otherwise? - minimum steps to make Synergy work again if it closes/crashes/stops - Synbergy log content for each system involved, with logging level set to at least Debug - SSL enabled? - Synergy in "elevated" mode? - size of content copied (exact size in bytes, if possible) - where copied (application, OS, is it a Synergy server or client)? - where pasted? - problem occurs one-way, or both-ways? - if successful in copy-pasting opposite way, does copy-paste the original way then work? - intermittent? - copying plain-text? - are any non-English characters involved? - are any clipboard managers such as Glipper, Glippy, or Klipper running?
