I am using Synergy version 1.4.6 (Debian - Client) and 1.4.5 (Windows - Host).

Keyboard and mouse are attached to the host system. I want to use the client without any mouse or keyboard connected. However as soon as I unplug the client's mouse and reset synergy the mouse cursor disappears on the host.

Synergy is still functioning well, however without showing any mouse cursor on host side.

Is it possible to have no mouse attached to the client host and still see a mouse cursor? Is it possible to virtualize a mouse driver/device on clients side?


In terminal type: gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.cursor active false
