Synergy 2 Crashes on Mac


Recommended Posts

Hi all, it seems that Synergy still crashes on Mac. I was able to install the program and as soon as I signed in to my Mac and Windows Machine the Mac said failed to connect to background service. I pressed retry and from that point the app would not open. Any suggestions or ideas? I am using OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan

I have the same iMac, and Synergy 2 has never worked on it, ever since the first release. I suspect that the software isn't compiled properly for these older macs, since the error indicates that the synergy code is looking for a symbol in the system library that isn't there:

Dyld Error Message:
  Symbol not found: _os_log_create
  Referenced from: /Applications/Synergy.app/Contents/MacOS/synergy-config
  Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib

I've had to go back to using Synergy 1.8.

If you have support, I'd suggest opening a ticket, and maybe they'll pay attention if enough of us do.
