Synergy on freebsd 11

3 posts in this topic

I'm aware this isn't a supported platform, so not expecting Nick or any of the rest of the symless/synergy team to spend time investigating, but has anyone else out there in userland got synergy2 pro working under freebsd11.1 or any freebsd variant really? I don't need the encryption functions as I wrap it in a ssh tunnel because I have other (weirder)  machines that  ssl doesn't work for.

I have it sort of working with the version out of the freebsd ports collection which is synergyc 1.8.8, protocol version 1.6, but the mouse pointer movement feels lagged and I can see a jerk when some interrupt is taking cpu on the box itself, so ideally I  would like to build my own newer version to eliminate it being some bug long since fixed.

I went to compile but I've been wading through fixing bits as its a linux build script, but if anyone has a fixed script that would be very helpful, or just a list of workarounds etc.

Er... I mean synergy pro, not synergy2, sorry about any confusion that might create.

And being really dull, the version in ports is 1.8.8 stable, and I'm running 1.8.8 stable on the linux side too. So I doubt there's anything much to be achieved here.

Maybe its cpu/the ssh tunnel causing the lag, I'll have to experiment a bit. Its been a long time since I used *bsd daily so still getting back into it.
