I want to share my desktop mouse and keyboard with my laptop using synergy. Until yesterday, both ran Ubuntu 14.04 and synergy 1.4, and everything worked fine.
Yesterday, I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 16.04, and apparently this one ships with synergy 1.6. As a result, it has now become impossible to share my keyboard and mouse, as synergy complains about incompatible versions. However, I have not found a clean way of either downgrading synergy 1.6 on Ubuntu 16.04, or upgrading synergy 1.4 on Ubuntu 14.04.
Is there a clean way to use synergy between Ubuntu 14.04 and Ubuntu 16.04 computers? I do not want to upgrade my desktop to Ubuntu 16.04 just yet.
