Failed to set process uid to:-1

Hello all,

I’m pretty new to Linux and I’m trying to run synergy to sync my windows PC and Linux machine. I have complied and build the binaries to run the software. I am able to start the server on my windows PC, however when I try to run the client on my Linux machine I get: “WARNING: failed to set process uid to: -1”. I’m posting this issue here as I believe this isn’t an issue with Synergy but my machine.

Thank you for your help!
