I've researched this issue, but found no solution.
I am running "synergy-1.4.3-MacOSX106-Universal" on a Mac Pro as the server. The client is running version 1.4.4 on a Windows 7 box. The client and server are talking as I can see the corresponding communication on both sides. I am getting the following error after starting the client and server:
terminal output on Mac: sh-3.2# /usr/bin/Synergys -f --config /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/bstrenger/synergy.conf Synergy 1.4.3 Server on Darwin 11.0.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.0.0: Sat Jun 18 12:56:35 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1699.22.73~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64 could not map hotkey id=ef14 mask=0000 started server screen "mac" shape changed accepted client connection new client disconnected accepted client connection new client disconnected -- snip --
This is my synergy.conf file:
sample synergy configuration file
section: screens # Host names
section: links # larry is to the right of moe and curly is above moe
I should clean it up, but I don't believe most of those residuals have any effect on the issue.
Does anyone have a clue what's wrong? This isn't related to the non-mouse movement issue from the past.
ok. Oddly enough, when I downloaded the Mac version, it was only at v1.4.3, while the pc was at v1.4.4. So I revisited the downloads page and found the Mac 1.4.4 and installed it. Now they connect. However, whenever I use the shift key while on typing to the PC, it acts as a modifier (possibly a Control key) and I am unable to type any further letters on the PC until I move the mouse back to the Mac and type something there and then switch back to the PC. Then I can type again. I'm not sure why that is.
