Mouse unsuable in Remote Display for virtual OS/2-eCS clients

Reported by: Rafcio Owned by:
Priority: major Component: guest control
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.10 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Windows


When I connect through RDP to Remote Display port on virtual OS/2-eCS clients the mouse is practically unusable. There are 2 mouse cursors, remote and local. The remote cursor hardly follows the local mouse cursor. It usually moves MUCH slower than local cursor, so the distance between them grows quickly and remote cursor sometimes jumps around.

Did you install the guest additions? Mouse will not work via RDP, if they are not installed. The OS/2 guest additions can be found in 32Bit\OS2 directory on the additions ISO.

I didn't know that there was a response to this ticket. I used to get email for every response for other ticket that I created. I don't know what changed that I no longer get emails with responses. Anyway... I didn't know that there were OS/2 additions available. I did install them, but I ran into a problem. With the required GRADD driver there is display corruption. In the middle section of the task bar there is an icon for multiple trays (stacked rectangles). When this icon is pointed by the mouse the cursor changes from regular (arrow) to a pointing hand the display around the cursor gets corrupted. If the mouse is moved around the tray icon the corruption is spread around. If the same action is done through remote display there is not only corruption, but after a while of moving the cursor around the tray icon the guest either freezes or crashes. The freeze doesn't happen for the same action done locally. If the frozen session is then reset the guru meditation follows. I will attach the log file for that crash. This is pretty consistent. The screen shot is just black, so no point in attaching it. If other display drivers are used (Panorama or SNAP) there is no display corruption or remote session freeze, but there are 2 cursors present when the mouse is moved. When mouse movement stops the cursors become one in a second or so. This mouse integration should be made possible with other drivers except GRADD. GRADD is not the driver of choice. While Scitech SNAP is no longer developed the Panorama VESA driver is. I believe is it worthwhile to contact eComStation developers to put the necessary integration code in the Panorama driver.

Also, the eCS supplied mouse driver (amouse.sys) supports scroll wheel, but the mouse integration driver is missing that support.
