macOS Mojave's new "show recent apps in Dock" overrun with Synergy icons on open

9 posts in this topic

Every time I launch a new session of Synergy, it floods my "recent applications" section of my Dock with icons. Any thoughts?

Running macOS 10.14 "Mojave" with Synergy 1.10.1

I saw the same thing with Mojave and Synergy 1.10.1 .  Synergy server keeps stopping and restarting over and over again, making it useless.  There are a lot of Synergy .crash files in ⁨Library⁩ ▸ ⁨Logs⁩ ▸ ⁨DiagnosticReports

There appears to be an issue when "Enable Auto Config" is disabled. 

To get it working:

  1. I followed the steps to reinstall from fresh
  2. Opened the app
  3. Enabled Auto Config (in Preferences)
  4. Allowed my client (Windows 10) to connect (had to accept fingerprint on other machine)
  5. Configured server with my Windows machine name

Hope this helps!

Auto Config was already enabled on both Macs running macOS 10.14 Mojave when I noticed this issue. Any other thoughts?

Same problem. Tried fresh install Synergy 1 and then Synergy 2. Both will no longer work with my Mac.

After I got Synergy working again, thanks to Valor Poland's instructions, I just turned off "Show recent applications in Dock" in the Dock Preferences and that did it.  "Show recent applications in Dock" is an annoying feature, in my opinion, so I won't miss it.

Bummer. I personally like that feature.

Hey thanks for the tip.  I didn't know why more icons were showing up in my dock after upgrading my MAC.

I'm still hopeful this can be addressed in a future update of Synergy. I love the recent apps feature in the dock.
