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.

chmod: cannot access '/var/lib/synergy': No such file or directory
chmod: cannot access '/etc/synergy': No such file or directory

possible dirty workaround:

post_install() {
chmod 777 /var/lib/synergy
chmod 777 /etc/synergy

post_upgrade() {

I cannot even pass the login screen. Guess I have to wait for later version :D . Anw, thanks for making the package.

P/s: this package should conflict with synergy (version 1).

I have full permission to publicly distribute this package, I made a thread about it on the forums and nick bolton(their CEO) has given me permission to do this.
you still have to log in with your account so this is not a crack of free version of the program, its the full verion converted into a AUR package.
I cannot downlaod directly from their servers since it will give a permission denied error if you're not logged in.

Seems pretty inconsiderate to publicly distribute their package you have to pay for.

fixed incorrect syntax and some debian only commands that might be executed during install and removal of the package.
so it should build now.

jaap commented on 2017-09-14 20:30

beta 4 is really unstable on linux.
for any problems go to and post under early access beta.
for problems wit the package-build or dependencies comment on this page.

jaap commented on 2017-09-13 13:39

ATM I cant download directly from their website cause you need to be logged in in order to download the file.
Also its not out of date, its just that the beta 3 doesnt work anymore, ill update to beta4 when it is released(
