I have downloaded a patch for a keyboard problem in Synergy for my mac but have no idea how to use it

"Patch" can mean many things. Please link to the patch so you can get a qualified answer. – Daniel Beck Mar 30 '11 at 12:22
the patch is from this page – Richard Mar 30 '11 at 12:44
I see there's already a patched version of the server: synergys-patched - synergys patched with synergy_57_corrected.patch (5.5 MB) Matthew Toso, 03/24/2011 06:21 pm. Have you tried that? – Xanny Mar 30 '11 at 13:06
I have already downloaded that but this is not a usable file format, in fact there is no file format that I can see – Richard Mar 30 '11 at 13:17

The parched version synergys-patched is a binary and thus should replace the executable file synergys. You will have to rename it and copy it t the correct place.

However as the bug seems to be 2 years old and the fix is due 11th April I would wait for the next release.

The correct place likely being the folder Contents/MacOS/ within the Synergy bundle. Right-click and Show Package Contents to access. – Daniel Beck Mar 30 '11 at 15:37
