Host Changes?

Recommended Posts

I am encountering a very annoying bug.

My setup now is this:

Host Computer: Windows 7 Professional 64 bit ( Ghost-Pc )
Client Computer: Linux 4.17.14-arch1-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Aug 9 11:56:50 UTC 2018 x86_64 GNU/Linux ( ghost@blacktop )
Network Connection: Ethernet


When entering screen on client the host seem to switch host to the client machine at random.
First it looked like it happened only when i minimized the Synergy 2.0.12-beta application on the host machine, but unsure if this is the cause.
Client is running the Arch User Repository program: synergy2-bin 2.0.12.beta-1 (22, 1.00)
with this command to capture information:


Potential fix:

Add the ability to lock what machine is the host



synergy_config.log (Console Log from Arch Client)
synergy-config.log (Log file from /var/log/synergy)
synergy-router.log (Log file from /var/log/synergy)
synergy-combined.log (Log file from /var/log/synergy)
synergy-service.log (Log file from /var/log/synergy)

Looking though the github text-config section i found a interesting setting that seems to work.

preserveFocus = true # Don't drop focus when switching screens

This seems to do the trick.
To be able to save the settings file you need to set Read-Only attribution after editing the config file.
