Synergy + XBMC

1 post in this topic

Hello! I just bought synergy to use with my XBMC (Media Center). It turns out that when I exit the xbmc remote machine the software also exists full-screen. 1) Is there any possibility this issue will be fixed? 2) Is there another way to swap between machines, like a key combination, instead of just dragging the mouse that might solve it?

Tux, Synergy operates by intercepting keyboard and mouse actions and sending them to the active screen on the client. To minimize other issues, Synergy uses a hidden window set to foreground. When XBMC loses foreground, it automatically minimizes. There is an option to tell Synergy not to do this. On the Server, go to 'Configure Server'. Then go to the Advanced Server Settings tab and check the box that says "Don't take foreground window on Window servers''. This should correct this behavior. -Jenel
