Latest Bata not working on Mac 10.10.6

8 posts in this topic

I'm on OS 10.10.6 and I've installed v2.0.0-beta5_b10 and it's not working at all. The previous version worked (most of the time) but with this one all 3 computers give a 'There was a problem connecting to background server, Retry' Message.

Could you try killing the synergy-service process using the Activity Monitor app?

Also, please send us your service log. It's in ~/Library/Synergy on Mac.

After I manually uninstalled all the previous services and prefs and reinstalled synergy it worked again. I had to do this on all three computers. Maybe include an uninstaller of old components so you don't have to do it manually? Just a thought.

Thanks Nick.

So I've been using this version for 2 weeks now and I'm having serious problems. First off, when I quit a program or resize an application window on the second computer Synergy loses connection. It sometimes reconnects but when it doesn't the real problems start. I'm trying to quit and restart Synergy when the connection is lost, which used to work on v1, but now it's impossible to quit the app. Force quit won't stop it from running either. And after that's going on I can't restart or turn off my Mac at all without having to Hold the On/Off button and shutting it down. This behavior stops once I uninstall Synergy.

Ugh. Used to work so well and now it's really messing things up. Please let me know what info to send to you
