  1. It would be awesome to have native V6 support in the Synergy app. For networks where the focus is to be v6-only or v6-preferred it's impossible to use Synergy without configuring IPv4 at the current moment. In Synergy 2 you could specify the full IP address of the remote computer but I found it didn't matter if I used hostnames with only a AAAA record or tried to configure the address manually, both with and without brackets around the address and wasn't able to yield any results. The synergy server would immediately crash and restart repeatedly with the v6 address configured. Additionall

  3. Hello, I just upgraded to Synergy 3 in hopes they fixed gestures on my second macbook. No luck :( It obviously works well on my main macbook but it would be nice if I could use my trackpad to do a 3-finger swipe up to show all apps on my second mac. Also, the option button on my mac bluetooth keyboard doesn't work either. I have to use the keyboard on my second mac to get it to work.

  4. not sure when wayland support is planned, but linux is moving pretty fast in that direction. Doesn't effect me at the moment, but I'm sure my next upgrade will see wayland on my computer either alone or alongside X. Either way X is clearly on its way out.

  5. Synergy 3 RC2 is here! A few of the changes: Many fixes on all operating systems Skip empty screen with continue button Improved overall installation process Use readable names in generated config file More comprehensive reset procedure on macOS You can get RC2 on the download page.

  6. It would be nice to use my laptop's keyboard as the primary while working on the laptop, but still use the mouse from the desktop computer. I'd like to propose more granularity in choosing which host is the primary for which device.

  7. Just wanted to let you know the android and Samsung Dex would still be great additions. I realize this thread started over 5 years ago but both android & Samsung have continued to move into daily drivers for so many people. Even if it doesn't have the copy & paste features initially, just the ability to share the mouse and keyboard would be great!

  8. Barrier is not developed any further at the moment. People who contributed to it now are flocking around input-leap. Waynergy was more like a workaround until libei was in better shape, I am not sure if this will continue as a project, now that there's a more defined way to do this kind of thing on wayland. So, my money is on input-leap. I'm running it on Fedora 39 on wayland right now. It's not perfect, but at least it's working again.

  9. Under the same Keyboard and Mouse section if you click on Hotkey configuration you can set a hotkey to Lock to screen. I haven't actually used that but I see that its available.

  11. Hi Tim, Thank you for contacting Synergy Support, I'm sorry to hear that you're experiencing an issue with Synergy 3 on your set up. It appears that the Remote Desktop is keeping hold of the keyboard instead of the keyboard transitioning with the mouse cursor as expected, luckily there is an easy fix for this, could you navigate to the 'Miscellaneous' section in Synergy 3 and disable the option Take foreground window which should resolve this issue. Hope that helps and please let me know if there is anything else I can assist with? Thanks,FerasSynergy Support

  13. Hi, for Windows: I solved this problem by uninstalling Synergy. I also had to delete the Synergy folders in C:\ProgramData\Synergy, C:\User\***your user***\AppData\Roaming\Synergy and C:\Progam Files\Synergy. (first 2 are hidden folders) Somehow an older version saved the former IP Address in one of the config files. Nebst 127.0.0.1 there was also the old IP Address of my computer stored. (e.g.: locale.json in ProgramData\config\) After reboot and new install it worked. wbr

  18. Yes this is disappointing, even the two finger scroll feels kinda clunky, I am currently unable to use my main machine with a keyboard. 2 USB C ports so one for a monitor and one is the power apple you are so awful. So I am having to use symlink just to be able to operate my mac with a separate monitor and with it on a laptop stand.. anyway enough moaning about apple, let's moan about synergy! ๐Ÿ˜† this doesn't appear to have ever been supported, perhaps it is super difficult, if this is the case can someone from Synergy reply here to let us know what the deal is here please?

  20. Any chance of a Synergy build for ARM devices running Windows 10? I was toying with buying a Surface Pro X, but I do pretty much live off of having my thinkpad as my primary input device for everything at my desk. I know, I'm a little fringe, but aren't all Synergy users?

  21. @Nick Bolton Any updates from the Symless team? libei hit 1.1.0 about 2 months ago. KDE is about to roll into Wayland territory by default. At this point I'm happy to give Symless another $50 to get Wayland support, if it means I don't have to waste a day fumbling around getting input-leap built and blunt forcing it into my Debian setup.

  22. Hello, I was just wondering if y'all have any plans to add Android compatibility to Synergy? I have an android tablet, and also now with the introduction of Samsung DeX would like to use that with my phone as well. If you created an Android app and charged for the app individually, I'm sure you'd get a lot of hits.

  23. Yup, same scenario. Laptop keyboard with desktop mouse. Otherwise, I've got to switch the mouse plug from the desktop computer to the laptop (and vice versa) every time I dock (and remove) my laptop on the desk.

  26. I don't know at what point this issue started exhibiting itself, but for the longest time I thought it was some combination of Little Snitch rules and the iCloud Private Relay. But I uninstalled Little Snitch and disabled the Private Relay feature, and this issue didn't go away. So I reinstalled Little Snitch and told it to block 172.0.0.0/8 addresses, and that resolved my issue. You see, I created a different thread about this a month ago, but my Windows 10 server has several virtual network adapters, and Synergy recognizes all of them, for some reason (but no IPv6...?). And while my mac

  27. It's an issue with RC2, I reset Synergy on both, reinstalled RC1, rebooted both, configured them, and now I'm back up and running again. I might try and reproduce the issue with RC2 again this evening just to confirm I have the same problem come back.

  28. RC2 is broken for me as well. Win11 server, Ubuntu 22.04 client. The connection is working but the mouse is "invisible" (actual pointer on Ubuntu doesn't move but I can see when my mouse is moving over buttons that highlight. Also, the keyboard isn't working. I've reset Synergy on both machines, no change.

  30. Hi Brad, I contacted Synergy Support in April 2023 with this question. They replied: "We are considering adding a wrap option in Synergy 3, although that will probably not be available until after GA. In the meantime, it's possible to support the layout using a custom configuration in Synergy 1." I therefore did not upgrade to Synergy 3, but I believe the first version is still available to download, which I still use. Symless offered to help with the process, but I used the principle of the below solution. It works fine with my old MacBook Pro laptop between a M1 Mac

  31. Came here looking for a fix too, bummer that it's just a Windows thing I guess. New Synergy 3 still has the same issue, and I've got Win 11 host to Win 11 client where I can't type on the client in the picker. Synergy 3 does seem to resolve issues I had in the past with settings/UAC prompts that required elevated access that Synergy (no matter WHAT I did in settings) just couldn't access, so I was hoping it would fix this too, but this is like the last holdout. It's such a dumb thing to be annoyed by, but dang if it doesn't annoy the heck outta me every time. ๐Ÿ˜ž

  32. Same for me, but it seems to work if I paste it on the Mac first into some app that accepts it, e.g. Preview app and then paste into NextCloud Text, and then re-copy and paste it. That looks to me as if the Macos screenshot clipboard format is somewhat not compatible to the Windows clipboard image. Did you find any solution ? Synergy 3.0.72.1

  33. Hi there, I'm using Synergy 3 Beta, v3.0.70.34-beta, and I don't know where to post ideas, so I hope i'm in the right place. And sorry for my bad english. Ideas: 1 - Profiles, with different screen positions, since some computers can be notebooks and may change position, or with my situation where the main computer changes (more on that later) 2 - Use keyboard/mouse from any of the configured computers 3 - Keep computers from sleep, when keyboard/mouse is in use So, explaining... Ideas 1 and 2: My main computer can change. I have two monitors, that I share be

  34. How the hell do I make the new version use my keyboard shortcut to swap machines like the older version flawlessly does? Do I need to pay $30 to get back functionality the older version had? What a load of fucking horse shit this app is. Also the entire fucking design is garbage beyond belief. Shitty fucking devs.

  35. Looks pretty nice, however, is there anyway to make it start in the background? Kinda annoying to have a big, white, unneeded window pop up every time I start any of my computers.

  36. I get the same message. Noticed that Ventura is not supported. They should have made that clearer on their website, as most mac users are likely to be using the latest OS. I need to figure out how to retrieve the previous version.

  38. 2 - Why it's breaking the core concept? Synergy is about controlling other computers through a keyboard and mouse, right? Synergy 3 beta has the option to change the "server" (the one sharing its keyboard/mouse) with some clicks (open synergy, click continue, click on the three dots of the computer you want to "serve" and "Use this keyboard and mouse")... Well.. if this option is available manually, why not automatic? It's "just" (easy to say) a question of "which physical hardware is been used? ok, now this one is the server"... no?

  41. I'm afraid this is going to be one of those unusual problems. Long time user of Synergy 1 Pro. I've been using it to control a rather "locked down" work laptop, and it's made my life infinitely easier. In all honesty, I was surprised it could connect with the latest work laptop, but it did. Many other apps simply aren't allowed, which brings me to my unusual problem. I'm using Event Ghost to trigger various macros from the host computer. It's capable of simulating key presses, so I'm trying to use some advanced features of Synergy as a workaround. Think of it this way: Event Ghost ca

  42. Can Synergy keep the "other" screens awake? Like sometimes I'm working on one screen but may have a monitoring graph or document on another screen that I won't want to go to sleep, even though I'm not over there. But I'm happy for all monitors to go to sleep if I'm not around (similarly could they all wake when one wakes). is there way to sync "activity" across all machines? (I'm on windows 11 and pop_os, if it helps)

  45. to whomever this might concern: this can simply be solved by using pulseaudio system (it's *nix native, but has binaries for Windows and OS X AFAIK). server side can be configured by adding following line to default.pa (wherever it my be on your system, *nix default is at /etc/pulse/default.pa) load-module module-native-protocol-tcp auth-ip-acl=127.0.0.1;[column separated IPs or IP ranges] auth-anonymous=1 on server you can then list sinks with pactl list sinks and then tunnel the sound from client pactl load-module module-tunnel-sink "server=[IP OF SERVER] sink

  47. This took quite a bit of troubleshooting, and it's a bit of a hack. These settings assume you're using a Windows system as the server, and the Mac system is the client. What this will do to map your keys: Windows key 'control' will be 'command' on the Mac client Windows key 'Windows' will be the 'option key' on the Mac client Windows key 'alt' will be the 'control' key on the Mac client On Windows: Stop the Synergy service running in the background. Go to C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\AppData\Local\Symless\Synergy Edit the synergy.conf file as follow

  48. It takes a little work, but it is possible to use Synergy over VPN without split-tunneling. Here is what I did. 1) Register yourself a free (or paid if you don't want 30-day nags) dynamic DNS address (DDNS) from a place like dynDNS or no-ip 2) Register for the Pro version of Synergy to get that sweet, sweet SSL security. You're going to be opening some pin holes, so best to keep the connection secure while in transit 3) Select a non-default port for Synergy to use - again security precaution From you home network router: 4) Create a DHCP reservation or assign a static IP for your s
