Can't install Synergy 2.0.12

Recommended Posts

samsungrocks10

It seems to install fine on one of my other debian machines but this one won't install, cant really figure out why. Other packages install just fine, all i have found so far about this kind of error is this https://raphaelhertzog.com/2011/07/18/deciphering-one-of-dpkg-weirdest-errors-unable-to-open-pathtofoo-dpkg-new/

Bump? Any fix for this broken deb? I'm unable to install synergy_2.0.12.beta_b74+0b61673b_amd64.deb as well for the same reason.

Made an account to respond with a fix. I was having this same problem until I used the OPs link to help figure it out.

Extract the contents of the .deb file to a folder using the command below. Replacing the deb file name with the one you downloaded and whatever folder you want to extract to.

  • dpkg-deb -R whateverVersionYouDownloaded.deb nameOfFolder

 

Change into the newly created directory.

  • cd nameOfFolder

Locate the synergy.service file in the directory you extracted to and rename it to the new format.

  • mv /usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service /usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service.dpkg-new

Rebuild the package.

  • cd nameOfFolder && dpkg-deb -b . synergy2.deb

Install the new .deb file and it shouldn't fail.

I followed all of this and it still doesn't install.

 

dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of synergy:
 synergy depends on libssl1.0.0 (>= 1.0.0); however:
  Package libssl1.0.0 is not installed.
 synergy depends on qml-module-qtquick-controls (>= 5.5.0); however:
  Package qml-module-qtquick-controls is not installed.
 synergy depends on qml-module-qtquick-layouts (>= 5.5.0); however:
  Package qml-module-qtquick-layouts is not installed.
 synergy depends on qml-module-qtquick-dialogs (>= 5.5.0); however:
  Package qml-module-qtquick-dialogs is not installed.
 synergy depends on qml-module-qtquick2 (>= 5.5.0); however:
  Package qml-module-qtquick2 is not installed.
 

 

Of course I do have both libssl but it's version 1.1.1b which is higher and should be fine but it does not recognize it. Same issue with the qml-module-qtquick dependencies of which higher than 5.5.0 should be fine and yet I have 5.12.2 which is higher.

I was able to get Synergy 2.0.12 working on Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco). I just needed to manually install the Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) version of the "libssl1.0.0" package:
 

wget http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl/libssl1.0.0_1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.15_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i  libssl1.0.0_1.0.2g-1ubuntu4.15_amd64.de

Keep in mind that the "libssl1.0.0" package won't be anymore updated automatically (possibly a security risk) and future changes in Ubuntu might break Synergy or cause apt/dpkg dependency/conflict problems. Use wisely and at your own risk!

You can also extract that deb file and copy the "libcrypto.so.1.0.0" & "libssl.so.1.0.0" files to "/usr/lib".

I just did a fresh install of U19.04, tried installing libssl1.0.0 and then installing 2.0.12.beta~b1705 but it continues to fail. Did you still have to do what 8BrickDMG suggested?

No, but my Ubuntu installation was originally 17.10/18.04 which was upgraded to 19.04.

Would be nice to get a flatpak or snap install.   We can't wait 3 years for 3.0 to come out and 1.0 isn't nearly as good.

  • cd nameOfFolder && dpkg-deb -b . synergy2.deb

Install the new .deb file and it shouldn't fail.

Some minor corrections / recommended changes:

dpkg-deb -R whateverVersionYouDownloaded.deb nameOfFolder
cd nameOfFolder
mv usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service usr/lib/systemd/system/synergy.service.dpkg-new
cd .. && dpkg-deb -b nameOfFolder synergy2.deb
