  3. So, the Secure Input is definitely the problem and a fair # of apps can hold onto it, causing problems with Symless as well as other apps like ShareMouse. I found a solution of how to find and kill the process causing problems by searching/browsing a bunch of forums (sorry forget where exactly I think a reddit post). In anycase, for those on the Mac who are ok with Terminal commands here's what you can do when you are using your Mac as the server (master) and suddenly your keyboard stops working on your clients (slaves) i.e. it's stuck on your Mac.

  4. Add the ability to share audio hardware as we do with peripherals like keyboard and mouse. I am aware of other projects/API available like PulseAudio ([url]https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/[/url]), Jack ([url]http://jackaudio.org/[/url]) that can do audio routing through network but limited in several aspects (not user-friendly mainly). The ease of configuring synergy inspires me to have such a thing for audio hardware too.

  5. 1. Being able to type on secondary screen while primary computer is not set to english 2. Switching languages on secondary screen that works (currently it works rarely, and requires restart on the client to get it working again) I'd love to see support for multiple languages work without having to always work around it.

  6. Hi. I've bought Synergy just earlier today - from the first impression, works quite better than Mouse Without Borders. I've quickly bumped into a small problem though. I have two devices - a desktop computer (server), and an average-sized x86 tablet (client). Both are running an English version of Windows 8.1 32-bit. Both have two input languages - English and Russian. The problem is: 1. Switching languages (set to Ctrl+Shift, if that matters) while on the client machine doesn't work as intended - indeed, it switches the language, but if the server' language is set to English, it'll continue

  8. I am running synergy 1.13 client on osx 11.2.2 big sur with a windows 10 server. It is extremely laggy! and i get the spinning beachball of death if i move the mouse around a lot. There is no lag at all on the machine next to it that is running 10.14.6 Mojave (and is a slightly slower machine). Both are on the same wifi network. Please help

  10. @joebob disabling AirDrop worked for me. I noticed that hardwiring into my network worked very well, but that also disables airdrop (if wifi is off). Disabling AirDrop is my suggestion for anyone searching this now.

  11. Hi Symless, Clever product but a long way to go to make this a seamless product (yes, intended pun) : Provide an option to auto-start when booting the server and client. Use auto-config as the default option When an incoming client request is received by a server, put the name of the client in window of "denied" clients (the log indicates which clients are being denied) Allow user to drag "denied" client into the "permitted" window. Your software is case-sensitive which means the user manually putting in the client name can cause numerous issues. On MacOS,

  13. Hello, I have replied to a post on this topic before, but it was an old one and so I thought to start afresh as per the forum's guidelines (please let me know if I have misunderstood this). Setup is as follows: Version: Synergy 1 Pro 1.10.2 Server: Windows 10 home Client: Linux Ubuntu 18.04.2 I experience a lot of issues with repeated keystrokes and the cursor appearing to freeze. Repeated keystrokes occur frequently and the freezing varies though at times it is so frequent the mouse is unusable. Previously I tried: Reinstalled both Synergy 1 and 2, f

  15. and I think synergy is not designed to multiple input methods environment. at windows client, Korean IME input methods using right alt to change language and it also not works. I hope synergy team has priority to this...

  16. I've recently had to configure a new setup too and Synergy 1.12 has simply defeated me. In case you need an alternative try it's opensource clone. If you happen to have only Windows machines feel free to try Microsoft's own alternative. It has all the features Synergy has but they actually work (like drag and dropping a file, sharing clipboard, working when server is on lock screen). I really wish Synergy 3 gets me back as I do need a Linux client, but I also need to write accented characters now very often now and Synergy can't do it properly yet.

  17. I'm having issues with my mouse freezing, and also key presses "freezing" in mid-press. In other words, sometimes the input will "freeze" for two or three seconds... and if I happened to press a key at that exact moment... it will register as having been held down until it "unfreezes." So for example. I was about to type the word "this" and then this was typed "thhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhis..." instead.

  18. I have 2 laptops, each with one external monitor above it, so it looks like a 2x2 grid, where the left 2 squares are Computer A, and the right 2 squares are Computer B. Computer B is the host. For this post, I will refer to each screen as "A:Top" or "B:Bot", like so: |-------|-------| | A:Top | B:Top | |-------|-------| __________________ |-------|-------| | A:Bot | B:Bot | |-------|-------| I have successfully connected using both Synergy 1 and 2, but with both, I have this weird problem. I cannot make my mouse go directly from B:Bot -> A:Bot. I can, however, go from B:Top ->

  21. I see v 1.12 is now released, can't seem to see any release notes for it? There used to be a release notes page but saee that no longer exists, can't see a release note entry in the blog either like there was for 1.11. Any details around somewhere?

  23. Just bought Pro and disappointed to find this. I hope the return policy is good, and I can find another software to do this. On the other hand, learning keyboard shortcuts has been fun. BUMP

  25. Hey all, I have found a workaround for those of us with certain monitor layouts, like my 3x server and 1x client centered above. By saving and editing a server configuration file, I was able force the corner size to the width of my outer monitors, making synergy ignore them completely. Here are steps to do this, all on the server: Select File > "Save configuration as..." and save the file somewhere. Easiest to use .sgc extension though it doesn't force you. Open the file in a text editor, and find this line: switchCornerSize = 0 Change to desired widt

  26. As of August 2020, I couldn't figure out how to start the GUI with correct server address (Using Synergy as client)... but, I did manage to get the service started silently and I can live with that. I think Synergy has a bug where it saves it's first config file in /tmp folder and thereafter it doesn't pick up the config file even if you save it multiple times. Or it doesn't pick up the config file for client starts at all. Anyway solution on Raspberry Pi 4 (4Gb running latest Raspberry Pi OS May 2020 with updates). Edit /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart. Note the -pi in the folder nam

  28. @fu19900514 This type of custom multi-monitor positioning is not currently supported, this will come later on Synergy 3. To make things a bit more seamless, perhaps you can switch using a HotKey? Use a hotkey to switch between computers

  29. Hello not sure if this is a feature which already exists but my main monitor is horizontal and secondary is vertical but i am unable to move my mouse to the lower part of the screen on the vertical monitor is this something that can be resolved with a config fix or would it be a release.

  33. According to this week's news about Synergy 3, scheduled for release in 2023, this is a targeted feature but there is still a caveat that they don't know whether this is even technically possible. After logging this in 2016, now waiting for a possible in 2023....it's disappointing. Doesn't look as if anyone in the development team is a big Mac user or trying to use this on 2 Macs for their everyday work as they would soon realise that Macs without gestures are really very limited....

  35. I don't know if this falls under the coming features ("Tinker-y" Settings panel) or (Making the window size and elements dynamically adjustable) but I'd really like to see better position control for multi-monitor setups. I have two adjacent monitors to my main screen, but my right one is in portrait mode. So it is taller than the other two. My second computer screen is above my 1st computer's primary display. But I can't drag my mouse directly to it. I have to go to the taller screen to the right since it has the highest point of my setup. However, I'm able to move my cursor down to my main

  36. Well, found another tool in the meantime which works perfectly and actually is free for non-commercial use. Probably wouldn't have paid for Synergy Pro if I knew there was no support or feedback in forums.

  37. @eddier - I just had the same problem with 1Password on my iMac, which is my Synergy server. When I had the app open, I could not type on my MacBook Pro, which is my Synergy client. This would have driven me crazy if I had not found your last post. Thanks!

  38. More info... When I use ShareMouse (a competitor app I'm reviewing) on these machines while in this state the server instance has a menu option "Keyboard not working?" and this leads to "ShareMouse is disabled because an unknown App left "Secure Input" activated. Do you want to learn more?". After digging around this leads to the following support description: Mac only: If keyboard input is not transmitted/processed on a Mac, click the ShareMouse menu bar icon and check if ShareMouse reports a "Secured Input" error.

  43. They've responded to my email, but we're still in the process of investigating it. If ever they do find fix, I'll post it here. On the other hand, if I find some workaround, I'll post it here as well. Oddly enough, I tried the latest install again, and I'm not experiencing disconnections. I still experience lagging though. Though if anyone can, it would help the devs if we get logs off the machines with client disconnects / lags. I'm trying to get logs now so they could find out what's wrong. Unfortunately (or fortunately?), I'm not experiencing the client disconnects as before, so I can'

  48. I had this issue and was able to fix it. Turn off SSL encryption settings on all clients and servers, and apply the config. Turn on SSL encryption on the server and apply. Then turn on ssl encryption on each client and apply - once you click apply, you will be prompted with a fingerprint of the SSL certificate from the server. After accepting, all was good.
