Hello

I've just tried to use synergy with my Leopard install and the synergy client process can start, but then quits.

Any fixes yet?:(

Try running synergy client not as a daemon

I have had the same problem and until I find a better work around try running it with the --no-daemon option.

I know this post is old, just putting this here for anyone else who may encounter this. Example follows.

Format:
./synergyc --name [optional, specify client name to use] --no-daemon [server]

Ie.
./synergyc --name macmini1 --no-daemon macpro1
or
./synergyc --no-daemon macpro1

I encountered the same problem, and found a small workaround. If you execute the command like this:

# synergyc -f target-computer &

It will actually run the process in the background so you can close you terminal.

When I visit the Synergy download page today (and this will likely change in the future) I see 4 options for mac downloads:

On my macbook, the 10.8 download causes the error. The 10.7 download does not.

Hope this helps,

Yup, that did the trick for me on 10.9 too. Ironically, I just started contributing to Synergy, then Mavericks comes out and it is broken all over the place. : (
