    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.

    10.7

    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,
    Jonathan

    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. : (
