Synergy 1.10.1 not compatible with Ubuntu 19.04

12 posts in this topic

upgraded from ubuntu 18.10 to 19.04; upgrade process offered to remove synergy. i did so. upon trying to reinstall, received:

synergy : Depends: libssl1.0.0 (>= 1.0.1) but it is not installable

i would install synergy 2 beta but that had other issues because my machines have multiple nics and it was trying to connect on the wrong one and wasn't sure how to force it so i stuck with 1 stable. now what?

Same issue here, seems like libssl was bumped to 1.1 in ubuntu19.04. Is there any other way to get synergy running again? I'm a bit lost without it right now

Happened to me - did an in place "do-release-upgrade" on Wednesday evening on a Ubuntu 18.10 laptop I use at work (and share keyboard/mouse with a "corp" Win10 laptop which I only use for Skype4business and Cherwell) - Thursday was pub hol here in Oz (Anzac Day) - brought it into work this a.m. and no Synergy...

Tried installing again from downloaded version "sudo dpkg -i ./synergy_1.10.1.stable_b81+8941241e_ubuntu_amd64.deb" - no go...  libssl1.0.0 is not installed.

So I tried installing from default repos (I've done this in the past, you get an older version - but it usually works - but not 19.04 - no synergy in repos)

Tried "sudo apt install -f", "sudo apt --fix-broken install"... nada...

So - I decided to try install the Debian AMD64 version : "sudo dpkg -i ./synergy_1.10.1.stable_b87+8941241e_debian_amd64.deb" - AND IT WORKS!!!

Problem solved - if you hit this issue - install the Debian deb file - not the Ubuntu one :D

One of the annoying things about this - one of the first things I do when I install Synergy - I disable SSL in the client and server!  So why do I need libssl in the first place?

You sir are a god among men. Thank you! confirmed it works for me as well. now are there any downfalls to running the Debian version on Ubuntu, considering they have a separate Ubuntu version?

I solved this by building from sources locally, works well as well, but there is no documentation on how to create a debian package out of the build (no cpack definitions), otherwise I'd share a ubuntu .deb file with a ubuntu19.04-compatible version..

I've gone down the labourious path of building from source in the past - for some NTC CHIP ARM SBC's I was using (still got 10 of them) - it was unpleasant to say the least - but got there in the end...  never bothered trying to figure out how to build a DEB file...  just scp'd the binaries to the machines I wanted it on...

Tried (from source) again this morning when it wouldn't work for me - downloaded the source (hey Symless - why don't you include a f--king readme.MD with the source on your GIT repository???) - when make configure and make install or ./configure didn't do anything I gave up and remembered what a PITA it was to get compiled for NTC CHIP arch...  I'll stick with the debian binaries till Symless get off their arses and upload a build of 1.10.1 that can use LIBSSL1.1 or whatever - or just create symlink to the debian version that says "ubuntu19.04" :D

A huge thanks to user "UnixOutlaw".  I am trying to do "real work" and don't have time to fuss with my environment. After the Ubuntu 19.04 upgrade kindly removed synergy I downloaded the Debian 64 bit version and was able to get back to work. For me Synergy is a must-have tool. Thanks for this tip!

I'm not able to get it working on 19.04. Any update when Synergy is going to push an update so it works again?

This is a problem for me also.

No replies or updates concerning this for more than a month is a bit concerning.
