Tap to click not properly passed to guest on OSX 10.7

Reported by: wilderkde Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.1.22
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


Host is a macbook pro with a clickpad w/ mac osx 10.7 (lion); I set up in osx preferences the option "tap to click"; guest is Linux w/ opensuse (12.1 and now 12.2).

Running evtest on the pointer device under direct integration (that is on "VirtualBox USB Tablet", recognized as an absolute pointer) shows that clicks obtained by tapping are not properly passed to the guest.

When Tapping, evtest shows a press event, but not a release event, which is only obtained if a slight move follows the Tap. On the other hand Clicking with the whole clickpad works fine: both press and release events are correctly sent to the guest.

I am performing some additional testing; it turns out that, if I rmmod -f vboxguest; modprobe vboxguest, a new input device appears, and this seems to make everything work. Why it does not work the first time the module is loaded? I am trying to figure it out.

As it turned out, the vboxguest module was loaded too early; I had to blacklist it and let the systemctl service load it after a while. Now it works consistently. I am not sure if you want to keep the alias in modprobe.alias...

I will give this a try on an openSUSE 12.2 (is that how the name is capitalised this year?) VM.

For my information, did you remove the standard openSUSE Additions packages before installing our Additions?
