I use SynergyKM on my Mac OS X 10.5.7 MacBook Pro to share my keyboard with my Windows XP desktop.

On the Mac its recently stopped working. Here's the log:

7/29/09 2:23:39 PM Synergyd[328] *** -[SDSynergyServerWrapper isEqualToString:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x145930 
7/29/09 2:23:39 PM Synergyd[328] Exception raised during posting of notification. Ignored.  exception: '*** -[SDSynergyServerWrapper isEqualToString:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance 0x145930'  invoked observer method: '*** -[LCSStdIOTaskWrapper readCompletition:]'  observer: 0x146110  notification name: 'NSFileHandleReadCompletionNotification'

I guess a recently system update broke it. I went to go upgrade synergy, but it looks like the SynergyKM project and the original synergy projects are both dead (nothing released since v1.3.1 in 2006!). Synergy is so useful, surely the project has been resurrected elsewhere?

Synergy+ takes over where synergy left off.

oooh! Wish I had known about that a couple weeks ago! :) – Herms Jul 30 '09 at 13:26
Also just found out about this a few days ago. Works on Snow Leopard! – Andrew Nov 8 '09 at 4:52

I've just been using the original synergy (both Mac and Windows). Just set it up a couple weeks ago. Maybe it hasn't been updated in a while, but it still works just fine for me.

Visit the new Synergy website. Synergy+ and Synergy have now combined efforts.

Note that my Mac keyboard didn't work on my Windows 7 machine with Synergy 1.3.8 (though the mouse did). Downgrading to 1.3.6 solved the problem.

I am happily using SynergyKM on Lepoard. Yes it hasn't been updated but it works 100% with the existing Synergy windows binaries if you need to work cross platform.

I suppose, if it ain't broken it hasn't needed fixing.
