Some users have installed Synergy 2 Beta without knowing that it's now a beta version. It's still at the early prototyping stage and contains many bugs. You may not be aware that Synergy 1 is actually the current stable version. So if this is the case, please could you switch to Synergy 1? Make sure you uninstall Synergy 2 Beta.

Please let me know is it working for you.

Yes, and I've got a Logitech MX Ergo now, and that seems to work fine too.

Except that the left & right "lean on the scroll wheel" clicks aren't working. Not a massive deal. But worth mentioning.

Hi

I'm new to this forum.  I've been running Synergy for a while and have always had the Back and Forward buttons not work, but I've never sought a solution for it till now.  I am running 1.14.0-stable on Windows as server and Ubuntu as client.  My problem is I don't know how to start Synergy with a configuration file.  The Autostart is in /usr/share/applications and my config with the additions is in /home/ian/.synergy/MySynergy.conf.

Re-starting Synergy from a command line as follows does not work.  It doesn't seem to pickup the conf file.

/usr/bin/synergy --config '/home/ian/.synergy/MySynergy.conf'

Result: QSystemTrayIcon::setVisible: No Icon set
("-f", "--no-tray", "--debug", "INFO", "--name", "192.168.0.xx", "--enable-crypto", "--tls-cert", "/home/ian/.synergy/SSL/Synergy.pem", "192.168.0.xx:24800")

It seems the "--config" is wrong.  I've had numerous mice, and numerous Windows machines and numerous installs of Ubuntu over the years with the same problem.  The mouse scrolling wasn't working till last week when I stumbled on the answer.  So I'm encouraged to seek a solution for the back and fwd buttons on my mouse.  Hope someone here can help.

Thanks

Ian

I figured out my error.  I was trying to configure the client, when the configuration applied to the server only.  So I turned my attention to the server (Windows) and entered the two lines in the configuration file from the UI, and that fixed it.  I now have a fully functioning mouse in my Ubuntu client ... for the first time.

Thanks to all for the postings that provided clues.
