gnome wayland session with synergy fails
Last modified: 2016-07-19 15:55:27 EDT
Description of problem:
I tried out gnome using wayland under Fedora 22. I have synergy setup on my main computer, and usually connect my laptop.
However, under gnome+wayland, synergy connects but I have no control over the mouse or keyboard.
This works fine when selecting just gnome for my session
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Just start up synergy as a client and connect to a server. Fails to control the mouse.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.on servcer start synergy in server mode
2.on client (Fedora box in this case) login with gnome+wayland session
3.on client startup synergy client, synergyc -f -n fedora-client server
4. From server try to use fedora-client
no control of mouse
control of mouse and keyboard
I reckon this is pretty much to be expected, synergy is designed for x11 and not ported to Wayland.
