Has anyone gotten Synergy to work with CentOS


Recommended Posts

Andy Kaplan

Hello I have tried getting Synergy 2.0.12 to work on a CentOS 7.6 system. However, whenever I try to install the rpm package, I get the following output: 

Quote

$ sudo rpm -ivh synergy-2.0.12-1734.beta.e5daaeda.el7.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        libQt5Qml.so.5()(64bit) is needed by synergy-2.0.12-1734.beta.e5daaeda.el7.x86_64

        qt5-qtsvg is needed by synergy-2.0.12-1734.beta.e5daaeda.el7.x86_64

I checked the system in question, and I do have an extensive list of qt5 packages installed on workstation. 

What am I missing here?

The localinstall option appears to have worked based on the output shown below: R

The problem now is the master workstation, a Windows 10 Professional 64-bit, does not see the Linux workstation.

You do have 2.0.12 on both, correct? (Can't use 1.x with 2.x.)  If so, check firewall software and network connections... and make sure Synergy is actually started :)

Hello -- 

The version that is installed on the Windows system is: Synergy 2.0.12-beta, and that on the Linux workstation is the synergy.x86_64 0:2.0.12-1734.beta.e5daaeda.el7 release. 

I checked the firewall settings on both systems. The Window system has been set to allow Synergy through the Domain, Private, and Public settings, while the Linux system does not have a firewall daemon running on it.

Sounds right. I've not used the Windows version (Mac <-> Linux works fine with S2) so I can't suggest much more... might want to tail -f the Linux messages log to see if there are any connection messages (or check the synergy logs under /var/log).

I could not find anything in the log files to indicate a connection issue. At this point I am going to uninstall the software, and move onto something else. Thank-you anyway for help.
