What works

There is no installation, there are three .exe files (GUI, client, server). Basic functionality works, GUI works, connecting clients via the network works, basic operation is functional.

What does not

Broadcasting support; the broadcast hotkey does not appear to work, a line is displayed in the wine output that the API call is a stub:

fixme:keyboard:RegisterHotKey ((nil),1,0x00000000,145): stub

fixme:winstation:OpenInputDesktop (1,1,4000000a): stub

The RegisterHotKey API appears to be what captures the broadcasting toggle (middle mouse button in my case). The OpenInputDesktop stub message appears at least every second and appears to be some polling mechanism. Both appear to be unimplemented in current Wine.


What was not tested

Only basic operation tested, no prolonged tests.

Additional Comments

The official version of Synergy compiles natively under linux, but the Keyboard Broadcasting version does not and has windows only binaries. Wine does not currently support this version, since the keyboard broadcasting API-call is not implemented in wine.
