Description phil 2015-08-17 20:02:46 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):

How reproducible:
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 

Actual results:
no control of mouse

Expected results:
control of mouse and keyboard

I reckon this is pretty much to be expected, synergy is designed for x11 and not ported to Wayland.
