Linux users: beta4 needs extra config

I've found that Beta4 really doesn't like playing with firewalls and it requires more ports than just 24800, which was not the case with v1.8. For my testing instance it so far has required 24800, 24810, 24888 and 47651 - not sure if the ports are static, or if there's randomization involved in any of these.

These issues will be fixed in beta5, which is due in about 4-5 weeks.

Great news! I looking forward to testing it...

It's already mid October and no new news.

Beta4 on Ubuntu 16.04 is still unusable. After searching through this forum I was able to manually start the daemon(can't get the service to start properly or stay alive). Manually starting synergyd is fairly buggy. Seems to crash from time to time. Moving over to my other screen (16.04 client) doesn't appear to work consistently, and invisible screen edges keep preventing my mouse from moving reliable across the entire screen on my client. Wish this worked, or updates came out. It's currently unusable. Last I checked betas were released when they at least worked on the first clean install.... Maybe there were untested bugs, but this just won't start. I want to see synergy succeed but this is just poor software development so far.

Drag and Drop, my most sought after feature has never worked on linux/Ubuntu. My hopes and dreams of synergy2 working have been a total let down.

ExecStart=/bin/env HOME=/home/<username> /usr/bin/synergyd

for me in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS it was

ExecStart=/usr/bin/env HOME=/home/<username> /usr/bin/synergyd

FYI I was having issues until I created the core file at ~/.config/Symless/Synergy/synergy.conf and THEN symlinked it to ~/.config/synergy/synergy.conf -- without at least an empty file present it was not populating the configuration.

Once I did that and restarted the server and client, it connected.

Another Ubuntu 16.04 instance where Beta4 does not work, even after trying a bunch of stuff from this forum.

Eagerly awaiting Beta5
