Numpad sending arrows/page-up/page-down instead of numbers

11 posts in this topic

I have synergy 2.10 installed as a server on MacOs 10.13.4 and the client on Debian 9.

It is working fine with the exception of the numeric keypad which keeps sending arrows/page-up/page-down instead of numbers. The numlock is working fine in the macOS servere but it has no effects on the linux client. Anyrhing I can do to make it work ?

thanks

Thanks. Sorry about that bug. We do intend to fix that, but I can't give you a timescale. Are you able to work around this or do you need a refund?

Do you mean that with a wired keyboard it works or is it a problem with the macOs Server ?

It's most likely a software issue, where Synergy on macOS isn't intercepting the numlock behavior.

actually with a wired keyboard the numlock does not work at all in macOS and the numeric keypad enters only numbers ! That's perfect, i see no reason for arrows of other functions in the keypad.

Also the client receives numbers too and that is what is most important. Not a big fan of wireless keyboard and that is one reason more to stay away.

thanks

Ah, got it. What about sharing your keyboard and mouse from the Linux computer instead?

After further testing it is indeed a KDE/Plasma problem: i have the same issue if using VNC to the linux machine and moreover the numpad keys work fine in gtk-based applications.

In my previous set-up linux was the server, but now i need it to be the client.

thanks
