Unable to install Synergy 2.01 in Ubuntu 12.04

6 posts in this topic

I am trying to install Synergy 2.01 on Ubuntu (I have a older system and some important data, so migration is not possible right now).

I get the below error,

sudo dpkg -i /home/dkamurthy/symless/synergy_2.0.1.stable-b1034+59dd93a0_amd64.deb
(Reading database ... 238325 files and directories currently installed.)

I just faced the same - but with Synergy 2.0.4 and Ubuntu Xenial:

$ sudo dpkg -i /home/philc/Downloads/synergy_2.0.4.stable_b1205+fcb59be4_amd64.deb

So I tried getting the missing packages... but that didn't work quite as I had expected.

$ sudo apt install qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtquick-layouts qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qml-module-qtquick2

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies.
 qml-module-qtquick-controls : Depends: qml-module-qtquick-window2 but it is not going to be installed
 qml-module-qtquick-dialogs : Depends: qml-module-qtquick-privatewidgets but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

 

Then I noticed the last line above...  run that, and Synergy installed :)

Would recommend trying the "apt-get install -f" route and see if that works

 

 

Now just have to work out how to get it to work ... but that's another matter.

FYI, I resolved this issue using Ubuntu 16.04 using synergy 2.0.4...

sudo apt-get install qml-module-qtquick-controls qml-module-qtquick-layouts qml-module-qtquick-dialogs qml-module-qtquick2 qml-module-qtquick-privatewidgets

Then, I got this error...

NOTE:  After getting it to install, I got some errors, but I don't think that is related to this thread, so I will leave this solution here.
