Hi all, I installed it on both pces, also removed it and reinstalled it. Windows 10 64. rt clicked on the share from desktop 1 to desktop 2. but nothing is working at all. I emailed and asked if this would work to link 2 pces to play Diablo 3 and the support guy it would work fine. Any suggestions ?

I have not been able to get Synergy to work for the last 3 releases, including the current 2.0.10.

This is my configuration: Host PC - Win7 Pro w/ USB Mouse & Keyboard. Client - Mac Mini, macOS 10.13.5 Beta & Apple Bluetooth Keyboard & Trackpad. (The Apple keyboard and trackpad suck, thus the need for Synergy).

This is the procedure that I went thru and was able to get Synergy to work.

- This might be a Duh, but make sure all of your systems are are the same network via your router. Mine are on a hardwired ethernet and not WiFi.

- Uninstall all programs and delete all support files on your host and clients. Doing a program uninstall may not be enough. On the Win7 host, I had to delete all Synergy folders in the Programs Files, in the Users folders and all references in the Registry. (I tried a third party uninstaller, but it could not find Synergy) I did a similar uninstall on the MAC, but files were in different locations.

- Shutdown or Restart your host and clients.

- Install the current version of Synergy on the host system and let it do it's configuration.

- Install on your clients.

- Shutdown or Restart your host and clients.

- Open Synergy on your host. Give it some time to install and inspect you network.

- Open Synergy on your clients and give it some time.

- You may need to press Shift-F5 on the host and clients several times to restart the Synergy services.

- On your host, you should see a window in Synergy with the host and client icons. Move the clients to locations that relate to your screen locations. The host icon should have a white dot on the bottom. The clients will not have the dot.

I have a Win10 laptop, but have not set it up as a client with Synergy. Hopefully this will work.

There are some other key command in addition to the Shift-F5 noted above. The Tilde key (unshifted) will open a log dialog.

Ron,

That was a new one to me. 'Shift-F5' to restart services. I've been experimenting with it. On my system, it works great while I'm on my server, Kubuntu 17.10. 

I tried mousing over to a client, re-setting it to be the server ('right-click' and 'select') then pressing 'shift-F5' and I think it works, but I think there is a little lag time. 

I'm interested to know from other forum users if this tip works across the board.

Note: When I say "delete programs", I mean Synergy applications.

Ron,

I'm not understanding your last post. It looks like the same post from 4 hours ago.

You are saying you have Synergy working on your systems, right?

You posted a very good tutorial. I've copied the link to share on this forum.
