I've used the marvelous synergy keyboard & mouse sharing program for many years, but had not used it recently. I just tried intalling it into my stable AMD64 system (synergy verison 2.0.0) and I get this error:

Code:
synergy-core --server
[2018-08-11T15:16:55] WARNING: failed to set process uid to: -1

The client version gives the same error.


Code:
# synergy-core --server --version
synergy-core 2.0.0, protocol version 1.6

Googleing has not provided any help. Any suggestions?
TIA!
