@alex.forencich: When synergy became synergy-core (thanks abyx01) the build stopped producing the GUI, and while there are a few tests related to QT5 I haven't been able to find anything that implies the GUI still exists in the repo. Perhaps they're rebuilding it for 2.x? Let me know if you figure out where it went and I'll update the build to include it again.

This package is missing the GUI component that is present in the standard synergy package.

Git repo has been renamed from synergy to synergy-core.

Same as gokcen, this package always stays in my packages to update. It's at least a quick fix.

pkgver() function still returns 20170303.r2847.ec56ac44 instead of 20170303.r2847.ec56ac448

When I try to upgrade to 20170303.r2847.ec56ac448 version, I see this message:

Finished making: synergy-git 20170303.r2847.ec56ac44-1

Although pkgver is "20170303.r2847.ec56ac448-1", last 8 is missing. Then pacman prints the following warning:

warning: synergy-git-20170303.r2847.ec56ac44-1 is up to date -- reinstalling

This package always stays in my new packages list when I run yaourt -Syyua...

@Flat: Looks like they fixed that issue upstream- thanks for pointing out!

Doesn't compile for me unless I remove the patch line in prepare()

Maybe this information is outdated.
I had a problem installing this package in Manjaro distro.
Problem also was with manual installation.

After discussing this problem with Synergy team found that the issue is Qt version.
As I see in dependencies we have Qt5 and it have to be Qt4 (qmake <= 2.01a)

Anyway, I was able to manually compile synergy with the following:

# pacman -Ql | grep qmake | grep bin
qt4 /usr/bin/qmake-qt4
qt4 /usr/lib/qt4/bin/qmake
qt5-base /usr/bin/qmake-qt5
qt5-base /usr/lib/qt/bin/qmake
qtchooser /usr/bin/qmake
