Uninstall multiple copies of an Synergy


Hi everyone. I want to learn Linux for work so I setup a CentOS 7 system (what we use at work) and right off the bat I hit a hurdle. I want to use Synergy so I don't have to have multiple keyboards. I installed Synergy from yum (1.10 version) but it seems Symless has a bug with TLS in their software. They told me to install a new version that is supposed to correct this issue. I ran yum against the URL they gave me but the installer gave a message that it can't upgrade. I then ran yum remove to uninstall the 1.10 version. It said it completed successfully but I knew something was wrong because the Synergy GUI was still open on my desktop. Not sure what the uninstall actually did then. I then ran yum again and pointed to the new version they told me to install. Now everything is all messed up. My Windows box is the Synergy server and is complaining that multiple connections are coming from my new Linux box. So I uninstalled the new version once again. So right now yum doesn't think Synergy is installed by if I run the Top command I can see the Synergyd processes running. Also my Windows box is showing that the Linux system is still trying to connect. So at this point Yum knows nothing about Synergy so I can't remove it that way.
So finally how do I remove Synergy if Yum doesn't know anything about it? I am yummed out at this point Any help would be appreciated.

Show us some yum output.
Also
Code:
find / -iname '*synergy*' -o -iname '.*synergy*' 2>/dev/null
ps aux | grep -i synergy
Have you tried installing synergy2? At least that's what the newer package is called on my system.

Thanks for the response. Yea I hear you, but I purchased Synergy 2 before it came out and they had a horrible launch. They actually gave me the Pro version of 1 for free because of it. To be honest I have just been using version 1 that I never even went back to check to see if 2 had gotten any better. Does it still do the online check crap? I have to admit their team has been excellent through all this. The support is really good.

One thing I did add manually was the /etc/systemd/system/default.target.wants/synergy.service so synergy would start automatically on boot.

Here is the info you requested:

PHP Code:
[rename@cent ~]$ find / -iname '*synergy*' --iname '.*synergy*' 2>/dev/null
/home/rename/.config/Synergy
/home/rename/.config/Synergy/Synergy.conf

/home/rename/Downloads/synergy-v1.8.7-stable-9799e96-Linux-x86_64.rpm
/home/rename/Downloads/synergy-1.11.0-146.stable.b2173efb_centos.el7.x86_64.rpm
/home/rename/.synergy
/home/rename/.synergy/SSL/Synergy.pem

/usr/share/app-info/icons/epel-7/128x128/synergy.png

[rename@cent ~]$ ps aux grep -t synergy
grep
invalid option -- 't'
Usagegrep [OPTION]... PATTERN [FILE]...
Try 
'grep --help' for more information.
[
rename@cent ~]$ ps aux grep -i synergy
rename     3691  0.0  0.0 112712   988 pts
/0    S+   12:43   0:00 grep --color=auto -i synergy
[rename@cent ~]$ 
Thanks again for the help.

Synergy does not appear to be installed or running.
You should remove stray files and start from scratch.
