Hello,

If you'd prefer to go it alone, read on...

Sometimes, the background service can get into a bad state. We're working on the bugs that cause this. The simplest workaround right now is to restart your computer. But if you don't have time for that, you can try manually restarting the background services.

Windows

  1. Open the Services program (Run > services.msc)
  2. Find the Synergy service
  3. Click the Restart button

Mac

  1. Open the Activity Monitor app
  2. Find the synergy-service process
  3. Click the Stop button (stop sign icon)

Linux

  1. Open the Terminal program
  2. Run: sudo systemctl restart synergy

If that doesn't work, please check the service logs:

Windows: C:\ProgramData\Symless\Synergy\synergy-service.log
Mac: ~/Library/Synergy/synergy-service.log
Linux: /var/logs/synergy/synergy-service.log

Please open a new thread if you need help.

Thanks,
Nick
