Key mapping

13 posts in this topic

Is there a way to map keys in the Synergy 2.

I'd like to make the Mac CMD in the server behave like cntl in an Ubuntu client.

Refer to the "Things coming to Synergy 2.1" post. This is mentioned. It will not be exclusively Windows shortcuts, I believe.

@Nick Bolton, can you confirm this for me?

I realise it is coming; I'd like to know if it is possible to do it now by manually editing the synergy.conf file.

It probably is, I just don't know how, to be frank with you.

From what I understand the conf files are stored on the cloud so you can’t edit them.

The synergy.conf file is in ˜/Library/Synergy/ on Mac. I just don't know how to edit it.

Yes but it gets the conf file from the cloud so if you edit it it will just download the old one.

not 100%sure though.

No, not necessarily.

That being said though, Symless doesn't really want users to go into the .conf files, so that's plausible.

I'd go ahead and make a backup of the .conf file, and then go back and modify it with TextEdit at your own risk. You should be fine with a backup if you mess anything up badly in Synergy though. By posting on the forums, you've already accepted that you wouldn't like to contact [email protected] for their direct assistance, so go straight for it! We'll be here to help if anything goes wrong.

I'm happy to try to make the changes at my own risk, with the necessary backups.

I just need to know what and where I should add to the synergy.conf file.

I am only using 2 of these machines at the moment.

Server : Shauns-MacBook-Air.local

Client : anna-dell:

 

This is the synergy.conf file

Any advice on how I edit this to get anna-dell which is running Ubuntu 16.04 to use the CMD keys from Shaun's-MacBook-Air as ctrl, would be greatly appreciated

section: screens
  anna-dell:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none
    switchCornerSize = 0
  Shauns-MacBook-Air.local:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none
    switchCornerSize = 0
  ubuntu:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none
    switchCornerSize = 0
  earth:
    halfDuplexCapsLock = false
    halfDuplexNumLock = false
    halfDuplexScrollLock = false
    xtestIsXineramaUnaware = false
    switchCorners = none
    switchCornerSize = 0
end

section: links
  anna-dell:
    left(0,98.2759) = Shauns-MacBook-Air.local(1.72414,100)
  Shauns-MacBook-Air.local:
    up(0,100) = earth(0,100)
    right(1.72414,100) = anna-dell(0,98.2759)
  ubuntu:
  earth:
    down(0,100) = Shauns-MacBook-Air.local(0,100)
end

section: options
  relativeMouseMoves = false
  screenSaverSync = true
  win32KeepForeground = false
  switchCorners = none
  switchCornerSize = 0
end

I've tried edit and deleting the conf files.

As soon as I make a change with Synergy-Config.exe on any pc the file is created/restored to the previous state on the server. I even tried to stop the service edit the file and restart it.

As I said maybe i'm wrong or missing something but I cant seem to keep edit conf files.

I think this is by design and i'm pretty happy with it.

no you cant edit the file, it get restored from the cloud.

this might be a problem now, but when they add more config it won't is an issue a much as it is now.

the windows(and hopefully) linux to mac key switching it coming in 2.1 I think

Hi guys,

the feature to edit the hotkeys is not included in V2 at the moment. It will be implemented with 2.1 - but you will have to wait until Q1 2018 to be able to edit the hotkeys again.
