Updated launchd Property List File for Synergy

After posting my article on running the Synergy server automatically on OS X Lion, a reader added a comment suggesting that it wasn’t recommended to use a shell script to launch a process via launchd. I haven’t been able to find any information to back up that recommendation, but I did create a new launchd property list file that doesn’t require (or use) a shell script to start synergys.

Here’s the updated property list file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer/DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
        <string>Synergy server daemon</string>

After making the changes and rebooting, everything seems to work just fine. Thanks for the tip!
