Stopping the service

9 posts in this topic

Seriously? With that many issues this software has (and I can tell for sure it's practically the same as version 1.8.x because it has exact the same issues) you don't even give us the option to restart the service from the UI?

That's ridiculous, as if you're not even aware of all the issues.

Restarting my Windows host now doesn't fix stuck-rmouse-button issue on my macbook-client, for example.

In version 1.8.x restarting Synergy via GUI on the Windows host always fixed that for me.

I want an option to restart Synergy via GUI, and it should not be optional, because this software is definitely not capable of proper self-config, as intended.

Now even restarting it as described above on both the Windows host and the Macbook client fixes that issue for me. Only way is to reboot the client. Which is horrible because I get this issue almost daily.

 

@Amy Fox thanks for posting the workaround.

I want to say I agree that it's unacceptable to have released this software as "v2.0" without basic features like "disable" present.

We’re adding this feature in 2.1. The most requested features are implemented first. This is not the most requested feature right now, so it'll be done later.

Yeah this is greatly pissing me off.

I use synergy with a laptop and a desktop.  Sometimes I take the laptop to the couch but Synergy won't let go.

And there's no "Disable" button.  This is auto-configure run amok.

Here's something for you OSX users:

edit your ~/.bash_profile and add these two lines:

alias synergy-stop="launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/com.symless.synergy.synergy-service.plist"
alias synergy-start="launchctl load /Library/LaunchAgents/com.symless.synergy.synergy-service.plist"

open a new terminal and you'll have synergy-stop and synergy-start to control synergy.

If you want to get real fancy you could do the same with something like fastscripts.

We'll have a much simpler way to start and stop synergy coming very soon. Stay tuned.

Super helpful, thanks for this!

Looking forward to 2.1.
