Ubuntu crash on boot

8 posts in this topic

I am running Ubuntu 17.04 on a laptop and desktop. On both machines synergyd crashes shortly after boot. In order t use Synergy 2 I hace to manually run /usr/bin/synergyd in a terminal. Then open the synergy window to connect the two. After they are connected I can close both terminals

Thanks for the quick response. I read the whole thread but I am still having issues. I no longer get a crash popup on boot but the service is still not starting. Should I continue to reply here or should I reply on the other thread?

One thing I did notice. Your response in the other post says to modify /usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service. Which I did. There is also a service located at /lib/systemd/system/synergy.service. This is the one systemctl seems to be using. I modified both acordingly

/usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service

$ cat /usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service 
[Unit]
Description=Synergy Service
After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
Restart=always
RestartSec=0
SyslogLevel=err
ExecStart=/bin/env HOME=/home/greg /usr/bin/synergyd

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service

$ cat /lib/systemd/system/synergy.service 
[Unit]
Description=Synergy Service
After=network.target

[Service]
Type=simple
Restart=always
RestartSec=0
SyslogLevel=err
ExecStart=/bin/env HOME=/home/greg /usr/bin/synergyd

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Thanks for your help
