How to make my PC mouse the one that controls the others?

5 posts in this topic

So I use Synergy to go in between my laptop and PC, however whenever I'm sharing with them, I cannot for the life of me make my PC mouse/keyboard the main user. (E.g using the mouse + keyboard on my laptop screen) but it always allows my laptop mouse + keyboard to be used on my PC.

The white dot is on my PCs monitor on both screens but still not being the main one??

How do I make my PC mouse + keyboard the "main" keyboard/mouse?

I have tried uninstalled and installing, I have tried "sharing" from each different monitor but nothing works, it just won't allow my PC keyboard and mouse to be the main.

I have the latest version downloaded.

This is a very similar issue I am having.  I have synergy 2.0.5 on a Windows 10 PC and a Linux Mint 18 system.  I can use the Linux system as the host and everything is very smooth going.  However, if I try to switch over to the windows system it is very sporadic and doesn't keep a connection as the host.  Sometimes I have to keep synergy open in order to make sure the correct system is the hose system, because it will switch on its own.

Can you open the log window on the client to see if there is any input being detected from that side?
