I use synergy to share single keyboard and mouse and clipboard on 2 computers. Server and Client computers run windows 7 x64 ultimate. On client computer I got 2 languages English and Russian. When I triing to change language on client computer to Russian, I see that language icon changed to Russian. But when I starting typing I see that language icon turn back to English and I see english characters. When I triing to switch language by mouse - the same result. When I triing to switch language using client keyboard or mouse on the client I got the same result. So how can I switch language on the client?

Strange behavior: when I pressed Alt-Shift the language turned to Russian. And now I can't switch it to English.

Solution found: To switch language on client you need to point your mouse on server and turn language there. The language of client is defined by language on server.

Have you tried switching the language using the Alt+Shift shortcut? –  Stefan Seidel Feb 7 '13 at 14:40
