Mouse gets stuck on clients screen

6 posts in this topic

my mouse cursor is invisible on the clients screen and i can't get back to my main computer without changing hosts on synergy by using either the keyboard or mouse on other 2 computers. It's very frustrating since synergy 2 serves no purpose to me this way. it was working properly for one day, Tried uninstalling on all 3 computers and had no luck.

Also this is all on windows, i'm using windows 10 on my host and the two computers i get stuck with an invisible cursor on are windows 7

I have been getting this periodically as well
W10 server
Ubuntu 16.04 client.

Mouse pointer gets stuck on the client, which seems to assign its self as the server. 

Client mouse can access the server desktop.

restarting both computers fixes the issue, restarting synergy2 doesn't

I have two PCs, a desktop acting as server, a laptop acting as client.

After the move to Synergy2, it often happened to me that I couldn't move the mouse pointer of the laptop any more from the server. 

It took me a while to find out: as soon as I touch the keyboard of the client PC, it no longer listens to the server. This lasts until I press space bar of the server.

I assume that there is some attempt happening in the background, automatically detecting who is the master. This logic seems flawed to me and I would suggest to disable it, or at least give the user the option to switch off this behaviour.

I believe this issue was actually due to me accidentally pressing `ScrLk`
So, at least in my case, this was not a synergy error
