the paste function appears to be broken in the mac client... i have tried making it autorun as suggested, however nothing seems to make the paste feature work

I ran synergyc -d DEBUG1, and here is the output:

entering screen
recv clipboard 0 size=73
setting clipboard
opening clipboard
emptying clipboard
add 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
emptying clipboard
added 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
emptying clipboard
added 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
add 32 bytes to clipboard format: 2
closing clipboard
recv clipboard 1 size=73
setting clipboard
opening clipboard
emptying clipboard
add 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
emptying clipboard
added 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
emptying clipboard
added 21 bytes to clipboard format: 0
add 32 bytes to clipboard format: 2
closing clipboard
checking clipboard
flags: 2
checking clipboard
flags: 2

nothing appears to be wrong, however the clipboard data never gets into the mac clipboard I am running synergyc as root using launcherAgent at startup and then restarting the service at Loginwindow

Thanks - that works great! Why has this been broken for so long and not been fixed?

What sort of data are you trying to paste? If it is not text, then that is probably part of your problem. AFAIK, synergy only knows how to handle text (either ascii, or UTF-16) for a MacOS source and/or destination.

This will probably want to be revised in the future. I don't know if there is a bug/task tracking this yet. If not, please feel free to file one, and we can look into it.

I am trying to paste plain text, it appears that it never actually makes it to the clipboard on my current user (on mac) even though the debug1 output claims to have added xx bytes...

after much messing, i found that 1.3.7 has no working clipboard, and doubleclick works after upgrading to 1.4.3 i realized after about 30 minutes of frustration and two reboots, and checking my mouse batteries that double click doesn't work either(lol).

both problems carry forward to 1.5.0 r1056...

So I downgraded to 1.3.1 AND THEY BOTH WORK AGAIN!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!

EDIT:

ok... now ctrl-drag doesn't register...... OMFG FML... i think i'm gonna have to go midevil on some source code if i want this to work

So, does anyone want to lead me to a point to start.. i'll svn the project tomorrow, but i don't have a clue as where to start

END EDIT:

not really a good fix.. I will submit a bug report, and hopefully i will have some time someday to dig into the code myself and see why it works on 1.3.1 and not 1.3.x forward

Please help - I am having this exact issue with both 1.3.7 and 1.4.3! I cannot seem to copy data to the Mac no matter how hard I try. I can sometimes copy data from the Mac to my Linux machine.

I put a single text word into the The mac logs are:

recv clipboard 0 size=20 setting clipboard opening clipboard emptying clipboard add 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 emptying clipboard added 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 emptying clipboard added 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 closing clipboard recv clipboard 1 size=20 setting clipboard opening clipboard emptying clipboard add 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 emptying clipboard added 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 emptying clipboard added 8 bytes to clipboard format: 0 closing clipboard

So it looks from the logs that the word was copied into the clipboard buffer. However, when I try to paste, there is nothing there.

Can you please tell me what to do?? I ran the server from the command prompt using this command:

/usr/bin/synergyc -d DEBUG -n $(hostname -s) -1 -f draccah-ld

So this should be running in the correct user space to be able to override the clipboard data - no?

Sorry to bug you all if this is a known issue, but there has been no replies to this question, other than the poster!

Thanks
