Linux+Windows Success

6 posts in this topic

So... After reading a few forum topics and a bit of "black box inspection" I've managed to get beta4 working between my primary Fedora26 laptop and a Windows7 desktop.

I had to add the firewall exceptions to Windows, as described here - 

 

 

I added the directory and symlink (with a fix for incorrect case) as described here - https://symless.com/synergy-2-beta4-troubleshooting

mkdir -p ~/.config/synergy/

ln -s ~/.config/Symless/Synergy/Synergy.conf ~/.config/synergy/synergy.conf

And I also added a systemd service override to get synergyd to start correctly:

sudo mkdir /etc/systemd/system/synergy.service.d/

sudo sh -c "echo \"[Service]\nUser=$USER\" > /etc/systemd/system/synergy.service.d/user.conf"

sudo chown $USER /var/log/synergy-service.log

sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl restart synergy.service

 

It's not pretty, but... it verks, it's verking! :D

Finally, Synergy 2 beta5 is here! Could you try this? No need to tinker with services now.

Get the latest version: Synergy-v2.0.0-beta5

Ha!

I could literally have waited one day...

 

I've undone _all_ the work arounds I added to make beta4 work, and beta4 is just working (tm).

 

The one thing I still don't understand is how to decide which node is the server. That piece of auto-config is a frustratingly black-box... I had to run through a few service restarts before my Linux latop took over that role.

You mean beta5, right?

Actually, we're adding a manual option right now, it'll be ready in a few days.

Yup. beta5.

 

Those pesky 4 and 5 keys are mighty close together... Maybe I should've used the build number!

 

Cool!

 

I have had a couple of minor issues since my last post - lost clipboard functionality and had to restart the synergy service to get it back. And it wouldn't connect this morning - had to restart synergy on laptop to get things working again. But it's getting there...
