21 October 2014

GUI wrapper for Synergy.

Overview

SynergyKM is a GUI wrapper around the Synergy project. The goal of SynergyKM is to give users the most "Mac like" experience while using Synergy.

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own display. SynergyKM consists of a preference pane and menu extra. The installer includes the latest version of Synergy, so no extra downloads are required.

What's new in SynergyKM

Version 1.0.2:
  • Works in OS X 10.10 Yosemite
  • Fixed client mode bug that prevented SynergyKM to be used in client mode
  • Removed garbage collection from all components (now unsupported by Apple)

Search for word TCC.db 4. In line that contains TCC.db, add another NULL argument to it like mentioned below: VALUES('kTCCServiceAccessibility','com.synergykm.synergyd',0,1,1,NULL,NULL)\"" with adminis

Fantastic App! Easy setup! I ran into an issue setting up which was my fault (I was on two different networks unknowingly), and the customer support was prompt, personal, and perfect. After spending 30 minutes troubleshooting SynergyKM on my own, Karl helped me isolate the issue to the network and it was resolved within 20 minutes of email correspondence.

Version 1.0 doesn't properly install on my 2009 MBP with Mavericks on it. Either the installation fails or launching it crashes the System Preferences app. I've emailed the author and will reply to this thread once I get the reply.

I had a heck of a time trying to figure out how to get the client and the server to connect with each other, but I finally figured it out. On the server (the computer that will be remote controlled) you have to add a screen for the client (the computer to which the physical keyboard and mouse are attached) AND you also have to add a screen for the server. Just give each screen the same name as your client and server machines. No additional screen configuration is necessary.

Used Synergy and SynergyKM on Macs, PCs, Ubuntu ... all varying levels of operating systems ... for years! I love it... it's easily my favorite and most-used tool on every computer. I fix comps for a living and being able to add a bunch of client machines to the mix just makes the fix-flow go so much faster. SynergyKM just makes the features easier to access. If you want to get fancy and really customize things even more, you've got to go to the Synergy mothership. See my troubleshooting note if you get an Applescript error after installing it. Good luck!

I installed SynergyKM with no problems on my mac mini, but when I tried to install it on my macbook it allows me but when I went to configure it it gives me a AppleScript Error "System Preferences got an error: AppleEvent handler failed.(-10000)". SynergyKM shows in my system preferences, but system preferences quits any time I try to open SynergyKM. HELP! both machines are running snow leopard and are up to date. Thanks!

I can't seem to get synergykm working on snow leopard as a server. It works fine as a client, but won't work as a server. I have a MB pro (leopard), Ubuntu, and an IMac(snow leopard). When I run the MB pro as a server and the Imac as a client, it works. But when I try to make the Imac the server, it just sits there waiting for connections. I have the firewall off in the system prefs. Please help?

SynergyKM, where have you been all my life? I just spent an hour or two playing around with the command line synergy interface trying to get everything working with no success. I stumbled upon this program and was up and running in literally 5 minutes! Awesome! My server is an XP machine. Clients are a Windows 7 RC computer and a Mac. Only thing I had to do to get it to work was use the servers IP address instead of its name. I had already set up the configuration of the screens on my server so everything was ready to go when I installed SynergyKM on the Mac. I now have a wall of monitors at my command. Five stars.

This is a must have if you use synergy. It saves a lot of time vs manually configuring files and having the status in the menu bar is a huge plus.

No matter what I did I could not get synergy to work on my new Mac Pro OS X 10.5.2. I tried every configuration I could find on the web, nothing worked. I'm comfortable working in a UNIX environment so that wasn't an issue. In every attempt I always got "Configuration not found". I found a blog entry about SynergyKM, found the software and installed it. Within a minute of install I was happily working with my XP machine using my Mac keyboard/mouse. Works great!

Overall, a nice piece of software for multiple platform usage, though beware that SynergyKM doesn't always play nice with other pieces of software. On my old iBook G4, for example, using SynergyKM caused repeated kernel panics, especially on reboots. I found the issue to be between SynergyKM and iScroll2 (a two finger touch mod for older Powerbooks/iBooks). After repeated attempts to install and uninstall one, both, and one or the other, it became clear the issue only existed when they both were on the machine. Since I had to choose, I chose iScroll2, and now utilize an alternative to Synergy called teleport (for Macs only). Been kernel panic free and loving it, though I do miss my cross platform playing with a single mouse and keyboard. I ran into no such issues on my newer MacBook Pro (2.4GHz 15"), granted I have no need for iScroll2 on that machine and so no conflict. My advice: If it works without conflict, it's great. If not, it's a pain in the arse (Tip: Be ready to Safe Boot OS X).

This program simply doesn't work. I've ran Synergy without a GUI successfully, as well as the wonderful QuickSynergy. But no combination of IP addresses or computer names can make this work.

Tested this out with my MacBook being the server. Connected first from my G3 running 10.3.9, and that worked fine. Then I tested on 10.2.8, and it gave an AppleScript error during the install. I couldn't get System Preferences to see the prefpane, but was able to copy my preferences from my 10.3.9 partition and run the daemon manually, which did work. Up to this point I had been using my own AppleScript to start synergys/c on startup, but still had to set it up manually. SynergyKM really simplifies it (although it took me a while to figure it out - GUI is confusing).

Last time I used synergy 1.3, it could not be run as a Server on OS X. Who is going to run a PC all the time so that they can use a Mac occasionally? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Cool idea and decent GUI. Too bad there's already a Synergy app for the mac (unrelated to KM switching), so the naming's a bit confusing.
