Unable to compile synergy pro on Fedora 25


Recommended Posts


I am unable to compile Synergy pro ( source archive downloaded from: https://symless.com/synergy/download/direct?platform=linux ) on Fedora 25. My issue is very similar to: https://github.com/symless/synergy/issues/5529

Exact steps I have taken:
- Download above archive, extract, enter
- Attempt config with 

QT_SELECT=4 ./hm.sh conf -g1

Config fails with: no qmake found. Added /usr/lib64/qt4/bin. Config now completes, but returns the following:

-- Configuring done
-- Generating done
-- Build files have been written to: /home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source/build/release
Going back to: /home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source
Error: Could not get revision, git error: 128

- Run build with

./hm.sh build

Which outputs:

[100%] Built target unittests
Going back to: /home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source
Make GUI command: make -w
Entering dir: src/gui
make: Entering directory '/home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source/src/gui'
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
make: Leaving directory '/home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source/src/gui'
Going back to: /home/jniedrauer/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.8-stable-c30301e-Source
Error: make -w failed with error: 512

I can complete the build when following the instructions here: https://github.com/symless/synergy/wiki/Compiling

However, there is no compileDir/bin/plugins directory (pro version isn't on github I take it?) How can I proceed with using the pro version on linux?
