AltGR not working

1 post in this topic



first config:

I am using Synergy V1.8.3 Server on a Raspberry Pi and two 1.8.4 client on Windows 7 64 bit machines.

Language and keyboard- layout on all systems the same: German.

The first time all "normal" keys (a-z, 1-9) working fine. Also Z and Y keys are o.k. Only the ALTGR keys (@, |, ~...) did not work.

For example: If I pressed ALTGR+Q, Synergy write "2" on my textfile or word- document (on my keyboard, ALTGR+Q = @).

I try to input the ALT = ALTGR and ALTGR= ALT on synergy config- file, but without success.

After a while the Synergy- system goes crazy: Z and Y keys has changed, no ß- key available. It looks like that the complete keyboard layout changed.


2nd config:

If I use a Synergy server on a Windows 7 64Bit machine instead Raspberry pi (Linux), no problem with AltGR keys on all clients.


For me the Raspi pi Synergy server would be a great solution because the power consumption are very low (in compare to a normal PC that I use only as a Synergy Server).

Any Ideas?

Hi Guys,


I have read some other threads and find a solution for my German layout problem. Add "altgr = shift" for all screens in your config file.

For me the solution works fine, some very special key I can input by a local virtual keyboard.


section screens:


altgr = shift
