Compiling Synergy Keyboard and Mouse Sharing App on Armbian
One of our go-to tools here for controlling multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse is Synergy by Symless. In light of Armbian not having a package for Synergy in apt, we set about to compile from scratch.
(Thanks to @lanefu for help in getting over some compilation obstacles!)
From the terminal, enter:git clone https://github.com/symless/synergy-core.git
sudo apt -y install qtcreator qtbase5-dev cmake make g++ xorg-dev libssl-dev libx11-dev libsodium-dev libgl1-mesa-glx libegl1-mesa libcurl4-openssl-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev qtdeclarative5-dev libqt5svg5-dev libsystemd-dev libgdk-pixbuf-2.0-dev libnotify-dev qttools5-dev
cp synergy* /usr/bin/.
At this point, we were able to get Synergy to work on the Indiedroid Nova running Armbian.
