    We are aware of an issue in Synergy 1.10.3 where the background service fails to start. Service "Synergy" (synergy) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services. We suspect that this issue is caused by the installer not providing the correct VC++ redistributable. Solution: Install the latest VC++ redistributable from Microsoft. Please open a support ticket if you're still experiencing problems. Note: This thread is a continuation of an earlier locked thread.

    Most likely the next major version next year. It's a very high priority for us, but we are of course way over that original estimate.

    Is there a manual for using this? I just got two computers connected but I had to go to this forum to figure out how to do it. There must be a doc or a FAQ or Wiki explaining how to use this cool utility. Please let me know where to find it. Thanks.

    Yes, unfortunately, we do not have the resources to solve issues in Synergy 2 at this time, so Synergy 2 users will need to use Synergy 1. Synergy 2 users are entitled to a refund, and they are also entitled to a free upgrade to the next major version when we release it for general sale.

    I had been trying Synergy 2. But it is frustrating me to no end lately. The main issue seems to be the control and connection link goes out from my local computer to the synergy cloud. Security concerns about every key stroke I type going some place I have no idea what back end is being used to handle this aside, The issue I am having lately seems to be when I bring a laptop home from work, when the synergy client was already connected from before it is not able to reconnect. It is like it is still trying to connect over the old connection from my office network. The experience I am expecting here would be something like immediately just works as if you reloaded a tab in a web browser. When your computer is on the network, it should just work. Perhaps to add insult to injury. When I leave my synergy client on, and go to my office. It will sometimes connect and work OK right away. So I am at work and able to move my mouse off my screen and then i am controlling my deskop at home. Which is super not even helpful at all. The second issue is lately if my internet connection is somewhat lagging, for example, downloading or uploading a file over slow DSL the control channel for synergy v2 becomes unusable and I am not able to control the other comptuer properly. I feel all these issues could be immediately remidied if I could just "use a local network please" option in synergy v2

    Thanks a TON AJDaws for your workaround. I actually found that for Finder I did *not* have to do anything different, I'm not sure if the fact that I use Karabiner Elements has anything to do with that (they supply some nice defaults like Fn+Arrows are Home/End/PgUp/PgDn in addition to Cmd+Arrows). I actually didn't use the Logitech Options software though because I don't think Linux is fully supported by that yet and my "server" is Ubuntu and my macOS machines are "clients". Instead I did a selective remapping in the wizard of the improperly detected button 4 (which should be 6) to Meta+[ and then mapped button 3 (the middle click, only temporarily which I then corrected to button 7 in the exported config) and did a "Save configuration as" to ~/.synergy.conf. This file is supposedly loaded by default if it exists, but being explicit is better. I closed the Synergy GUI and then made my fixes to the exported file (changing mouse(4) to mouse(6) and mouse(3) to mouse(7)) and then I opened Synergy again and told it to load that config from the "Use existing configuration" (because the default config syntax in ~/.config/Synergy/Synergy.conf is inscrutable, and also because it auto saves when you open/close the Synergy GUI, which makes changing things on the fly rather difficult). So the ROOT cause of this pain is actually Apple's fault, they alone didn't see fit to implement the WWWBack and WWWForward buttons in their HID keyboard spec, while everybody else did. Remapping the forward/back buttons on macOS clients to Cmd+[ and Cmd+] is the best and probably only way, but it would be awesome if the Synergy code was fixed to do this automatically.

    @mamaway Good calllouts, but I am sure that you are aware that there are things that are very apparent to people like you and me so we do them by instinct. There are also things that are obvious to others that just slip by people like us on a regular basis. I do not know the reason why release notes and a link to the forums are not on the site. Maybe we can ask someone instead of adopting this stance? @camkrasner Sorry that you feel that way, but this is not the absolute truth. I said that V2 should not be out of beta and here it is back in beta. They listen. It may take longer than what we like, but they listen. @Sponge Bob This is EXACTLY what is going on. And before anyone says anything... I am not an employee. I am a volunteer moderator that gets absolutely no perks from the company. I am critical of decisions that are made just like everyone else, but what I will ask is that things be framed in a way that is productive and makes getting what you want easier.

    Actually, you can use text configs to achieve fine-tuned monitor positioning. We're working on a help page for this but for now, you can either try to digest the Text Config wiki page (warning: it's a bit chewy) or open a support ticket and Alexey can show you how to do this. Edit: Also, we're going to make this possible using the visual screen positioning in the next major version (it won't be grid-based like it is now). If you do decide to delve into the text config world, this section might be useful to you: section: links moe: right = larry up(50,100) = curly(0,50) larry: left = moe up(0,50) = curly(50,100) curly: down(0,50) = moe down(50,100) = larry(0,50) end

    This is definitely what we are working on now. Unfortunately, I don’t have a time frame when it will be ready, but we will definitely send it to all users when everything will work...

    Do you mean toggle back and forth between the screens or the machines? So if you are running two dual-screen setups would you be able to specify going to the second screen of the other system?

    Can you give an example that does not include clipboard history where this is an issue? Also, what if the way that syncing worked was altered so that in order to paste from the other machine you had to use a Synergy contextual menu that brought up the option to pull from the other clipboard in real-time?

    FYI: Just ran into this issue with 1.10.3, had to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2019 on my Windows 10 machine. Link below. https://www.itechtics.com/microsoft-visual-c-redistributable-versions-direct-download-links/

    There's a good chance this'll be added amongst other things to the next major release of Synergy coming in the next few years. For now, I suppose you could make a script that would monitor an interface for an address that's part of a particular IP subnet and when that condition is met, to kill the Synergy process(es).

    Just got a Pi 4 running Raspbian 10 (buster). This startsynergy script runs fine but the place to add the command (@lxterminal --command startsynergy) to run it at boot has changed in buster. It's now at ----> /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart <----. As before, add that line before the line that starts @xscreensaver. This autostart file has moved before and we should assume that it will move again I expect.
