Hey guys, sorry for not really maintaining this package. Synergy 2 is never going to become a real product, this version is not supported anymore. Although you can of course still use it if you have the license and everything works for you. This will be the last update I will do to this package, as it is the last update.

From unofficial sources I have heard that everyone who owns a valid synergy2 license will get a valid license for the next major release.

In case someone else runs into my issue: In order to get sign-in to work, I had to switch my default browser from Firefox to Chrome.

Added xhost +local: to the top of /etc/lightdm/Xsession and now synergy works when I log in! If anyone can tell me if anything bad is going to happen by doing that I'd appreciate the heads up :)

You can add it to your .Xinitrc (don't quote me on the name) I have the same issue right now.

jaap, its working now! the xhost workaround doesn't stick between reboots, so it will has to be applied and the synergy service has to be bounced once its done, but it's a working workaround. thanks :)

Worked great, thanks!

Hey mellerl,

Sorry didn't really think about that, make sure you execute makepkg from the repo root, I don't test using any package managers, I'll fix this shortly.

Hey galvez_65,

can you try executing the following command?

xhost +local:

and then restarting synergy?(systemctl restart synergy)

galvez_65 commented on 2018-04-10 13:57

Hi jaap,

I have been bugging them lately about their x issues. As for my DISPLAY variable its :0. As for the synergy.service file, nothing I've added to it makes it work. The only way I get it to work with to start synergy-service from a command line

here is the contents of cat /etc/systemd/system/ [Unit] Description=Synergy Service

[Service] Type=simple Restart=always RestartSec=0 SyslogLevel=err Environment=DISPLAY=:0 ExecStart=/usr/bin/synergy-service


I'll wait to see what you come up with later with this build.

Not sure how well this will come across, but here's a patch for the PKGBUILD from 2.0.8 to 2.0.9
