I am running Synergy 1.4.10 on Ubuntu 10.10 as the server and on Windows 7 as the client. The problem that is happening right now is that the copy action on Windows has no effect to bring that text into the paste buffer on either Linux or Windows. That is, I cannot even copy/paste within Windows itself. Every paste attempt in either Windows or Linux gets the data last copied from Linux (or nothing if I have just booted both machines).
I was sure this worked when I first installed it. I have been assuming I broke something. But the configuration is so simple I see nothing in there to mess with.
On Linux (server mode) I have (desktop is Linux, laptop is Windows):
section: screens desktop: laptop: end section: links desktop: right = laptop laptop: left = desktop end section: aliases desktop: lorentz laptop: phoward-530 end
But maybe it was only Linux to Windows that worked (what I usually need to do most). But I do need to do copy/paste in other ways sometimes, so finding what is wrong here would help.
The only similar question that seems to match mine was for an older Synergy (1.3.5) that was stated by one comment as fixed in 1.3.6. But I'm on 1.4.10. Regression, maybe?
