Problem installing on 21.04 ubuntu

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to install Synergy v1.14-stable on Ubuntu 21.04.  I'm having a dependency issue I cannot resolve however.  Here's the output I'm getting...

$ sudo dpkg -i ./synergy_1.14.0-stable.67d824b8_ubuntu20_amd64.deb

Any advice on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated.

It's been a while since I've used Ubuntu (you should check out Manjaro) but it seems like the following command might be the most reasonable place to start....

sudo apt-get install -y libqt5gui5 && 

sudo apt-get install -y libqt5gui5 && \
sudo dpkg -i ./synergy_1.14.0-stable.67d824b8_ubuntu20_amd64.deb
