I downloaded the latest deb of synergy from the synergy website.

When I run it I get an installer and get the option to enable the password etc.

However, now I want to reset the password but I can't find the configuration.

Where does synergy store it's configuration? there is no /etc/synergy.conf or any synergy.conf file anywhere.

  • run locate synergy.conf command. – Avinash Raj Jul 16 '14 at 1:16
  • ~/.quicksynergy/synergy.conf maybe? – Geo Jul 16 '14 at 2:13
  • haha... I found it. /tmp/qt_temp.TJ8723 – hookenz Jul 16 '14 at 2:42
  • Kinda dumb because you loose the config when the machine reboots. So it would be a good idea to copy the file to /etc and recofigure it to run from the copy – hookenz Jul 16 '14 at 2:43

You will find the synergy configuration file in the Directory $HOME/.config/Synergy/Synergy.conf

In this configuration file there is an option crypto Pass
