Hi Synergy community,

I have a client running on Ubuntu 17.04, uninstalled lightdm and installed GDM because every 2. time i move from Windows 10 to the ubuntu machine the cursor is hidden.

I have gone thouge this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynergyHowto#On_the_Client-1 to start before GDM login screen so at no time i need keyboard and mouse to login.

Any one know what i need to do to get this working?

I went back to lightdm my solution to the mouse only showing every 2. time is:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false

then i did thisin /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

greeter-setup-script=/usr/bin/synergyc --name MYHOSTNAMEFORTHEPC --enable-crypto SERVERIP:24800

then chmod +x /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

now my server says
