    Hi guys, I have been tracking issues about mouse freezing for a while now. Although the symptom is the mouse freezing the causes seems to be varied in the reports I have received. One of the causes is solved by disabling a particular function and I would like to check if it solves the problem in other cases of the mouse freezing. Could you try out the development builds below, They are based on the current 1.10.2 release with the probable offending function disabled. Windows x64:http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/windows-x64/Release/Synergy_v1.10.2-testing6487_b119-93275071.msi Windows x32: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/windows-x86/Release/Synergy_v1.10.2-testing6487_b117-93275071.msi macOS: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/macos/Synergy_v1.10.2-testing6487_b133-93275071.dmg Ubuntu16: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/ubuntu16/synergy_1.10.2.testing6487~b107+93275071_amd64.deb Ubuntu18: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/ubuntu18/synergy_1.10.2.testing6487~b17+93275071_amd64.deb Ubuntu19: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/ubuntu19/synergy_1.10.2.testing6487~b19+93275071_amd64.deb Debian 9: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/debian/synergy_1.10.2.testing6487~b115+93275071_amd64.deb CentOS 7.5: http://snapshots.symless.com/synergy/v1-core-standard/centos/x86_64/synergy-1.10.2-116.testing6487.93275071.el7.x86_64.rpm Could you post your results in this thread or on the GitHub issue here

    I just picked up a copy of Synergy (used it back in the day but it's been years) and was disappointed by the intermittent latency I was getting. My setup is an ubuntu desktop (server) and a Macbook Pro laptop (client). Both machines are on a reliable WiFi connection. After reading the FAQ and posts by the Apple dev on how the wireless card works it's obvious these 'latency spikes' are due either to shared antenna access or power management features. I assume the power management feature has to be triggered when the time between packets is greater than some unknown threshold. With that in mind I decided to test my assumptions. # see man page for option descriptions $ ping -q -n -s 0 -i 0.1 <Synergy_Server_IP> #That could be any IP on the network really I'm used to linux so I'm not sure how to get the power management status from MacOS. However, the results are great. I no longer feel the intermittent 'latency spikes' under normal operating conditions. Clicking the wifi menu will still result in latency. There's nothing anyone can do about that, the card is scanning channels to find wifi networks so that's just the way it is. I left bluetooth on for these tests but I didn't have any devices connected. This approach adds network overhead. The total frame size for our ICMP request is 42 Bytes or 336 bits and the same for our reply. At the rate shown (waiting 100 ms between requests) that's around 10 ICMP requests per second for a total network overhead of 6.72 Kbps. I'm willing to sacrifice that tiny bit of bandwidth for a good Synergy experience. This approach uses more battery. Since we're tricking the wifi card into not going to sleep you can expect this to have a negative impact on battery life. How much? I have no idea. I mostly use synergy when I'm connected to power. Perhaps others are already doing this but I hadn't seen mention of it. My tests were a mix of "how does it feel" and actually graphing packets in Wireshark. One test I ran in Wireshark was to capture the time it took to move my mouse after a period of inactivity. Find the first packet the server sent to the client and note it's epoch time. Now wait for a response, In my case I sometimes have to try moving my mouse to the mac a second time. Note the response packet's epoch time. Take the difference and that is the latency you experienced. Run that test again while you run the ping I mentioned above. I now see latencies < 100 ms. I'm happy to get feedback on this but I mostly just wanted to provide a cludgy solution. Run ping every time you run Synergy. -Zach

    Setup between Win10 (server) and OSX (client). Didn't get Synergy 1 to work properly, same network, allowed in firewall on both OSes and also in the router. Pings went trough without problems. Really needed this to work to actually utilize the 49" monitor I just got. Took a gamble with Synergy 2, experienced lot of lag and DC from the client. Installed Share-Mouse. Proved itself being 200 times worse. Was just about to give up, at least for now but then i tried this. Decreases lag and keeps the connection alive (still have some DC issues) however seems to work pretty well when using the Mac for longer periods. Basically, I just wanted to say thank you @zachn

    This is so exciting! I'm sad to hear Synergy 2 didn't work out as planned, but also admire when one is able to admit things didn't go the way they intended, and want to start over to do it right. I never updated something so fast. Wishing you and the team all the best!

    I am requesting that we have have support for Arch Packages, so that we don't need to use unofficially support AUR packages that do not configure properly. Symless Supports Windows, MacOS, Red Hat/Fedora/CentOS, Debian Base and even Rasbian. But there is no Arch Based Distrobution Support at all. Bring Proper Support for Arch!!

    I don't need any new features. I just want synergy to be stable, which it has never been for me. Focus on making it work, forget the bells and whistles. I've been on board since 2013. Off and on. Synergy 2 I have never been able to even try out even though I paid for it. It seems I need to be able to configure proxy. What benefit exactly would I get with cloud? 1.8 works OK between windows machines. That's the only fully positive experience I have from Synergy. Too bad I don't really need two parallel Windows PCs, but the other one always tends to be Linux. Between Windows and Linux the keyboard gets screwed up constantly. One one machine caps lock is on and on the other it's off. Need to kill synergy to fix it. Most of the time I can't get @${[]} characters right on the guest PC (Linux). Ie. the Alt-Gr issue. It has never worked out of the box. Copy-paste used to be bad for years, now it's fixed. Thank you for that. There are new mouse/keyboard products that can control up to three machines at the same time. If Synergy doesn't get their act together soon, I'll make the switch. I really want you guys to succeed though. Please just fix the basic features.

    Hi! Can you try changing keyboard layout on both machines to US only(not international)?

    Oh and it's hilarious how you show the log text right on the main UI. That's bad UX 101, but of course, you need the logs there because you have so many bugs that users can't figure it out otherwise. You have a permanent diagnostic display built into the thing because it's NEEDED, and that's very telling.
