Getting spinning green bars under my computer names - black boxes

7 posts in this topic

First time trying synergy2. beta4. I'm not sure what I am supposed to see, or what messages are good.

 

I think the spinning bars under my computer name is not good. I do see my second computer (osx) as another black box, with its own green bar, that goes 1/3 of the way, then starts again.

 

What am I seeing, and what should I see?

Dave, is Synergy working for you yet? What OS do you use?

By now I guess you have intuited that green images without animated progress bars show that both sides are connected.

Not working for me yet.

Hosting on Linux, accessing a MacOS client.

When running synergyd as my regular user from a terminal, then running synergy2 from another terminal, I sometimes see a crash in synergyd:
 

[wamp_broker.cpp:111][process_publish_message] session [7090515283965860,default,open], publish [57, {}, synergy.service.log, ["[2017-10-16T14:20:27] debug: stopping core process\n"], null]

What should I be looking for?

I'm finding that the CWD of the synergd and synergy2 programs has to be /usr/bin/. Otherwise, I get execve messages about not being able to execute.

I have found that I got it to work once, with the Synergy2 program running on OSX, and both screens showed up Green and the mouse moved over, with the OSX machine in control. Now I have to try and reproduce it. :-)

synergyd and synergy2 both run as regular users, non-root, right?
