Hello Ethan,

Synergy is not like the common programs that you can drag and drop at the trash and it gets removed. If you have the installer that came with Synergy then you can run it again and there will be an option to uninstall it. If you don't have it or this doesn't work then you follow the following steps:

  • Open Synergy.
  • At the Synergy Prefpane, turn off synergy and remove its menu item.
  • Open a Terminal.
  • Type "mdfind -name synergy" (without the "quotes")
  • Remove each file which is related to Synergy by typing:
  • sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/SynergyKM.prefPane (etc)

Hope that this solves your problem

 

Regards,

To completely uninstall Synergy, make sure that it is actually running then open the terminal and type:
 
ps aux | grep synergys
 
Then you will see it process with the following displayed:
 
/Library/PreferencePanes/SynergyKM.prefPane/Contents/Resources/Synergyd.app/Contents/Resources/synergys -f –config
 
After it finished, use the installer package and run it again. You should see three options and select the last one which is for uninstall.
