Duplicate Display Name Error

Recommended Posts

I have used synergy for a long time between a Windows 10 Machine and a macOS machine with no problems. I have recently installed Linux Mint as a dual boot with my windows machine. The problem is that my Linux Mint machine has a display name of "liam" and my macbook has a display name of "Liam". Both machines show up and can be dragged and drop but I get the infinite loading bars on both icons. When I sent a log, the error was as follows.

I believe the problem is that i have the same display name liam on both machines and do not know how to change this display name in synergy.


Please help!
