okay, but don't do
sudo apt-get rpi-upgrade
it doesn't do what you think, and you might end up with a non working system afterwards! rpi-upgrade is only for experimental use. Also debian doesn't do "upgrades".

p.s. edited the subject line from "past" to "paste", hoping "past" wasn't meant as a pun, but was a typo.

I was under the impression synergy 1.4.16 is in the Jessie repositories ??

https://packages.debian.org/jessie/synergy

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own display.

Bug fixes.

If you use the newest version on your server the client needs the same version.

Ok, I took the plunge to Pixel! I followed the instructions to the letter though and I can't get it it to share from MacOs Sierra to Pixel. :? Below is a screenshot of the synergy server log:

Would there be any differences for 1.8.6?

Should be the same, or you could follow instructions for Debian 7/8 on the developers website:

Just realized Symless has been posting ARM .deb files on their nightly builds site since November. https://symless.com/nightly

I 'think' I finally got the .deb to work (accidentally). I reset my .ssh keys on my mac os server and now I have only one pair.
