VirtualBox 1.5.6 (the latest version) cannot capture the mouse on guest OS

Reported by: samiux Owned by: umoeller
Priority: critical Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 1.5.6 Keywords: mouse Compiz nVidia
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

My hardware and software configuration : Athlon 64x2 4200+ nVidia GeForce 8500GT Host OS : Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop with nvidia-glx-new driver and Compiz Fusion enabled Guest OS : Ubuntu 7.10, OpenSuSE 10.3, CentOS 5.1

The mouse pointer cannot be captured when Compiz Fusion is enabled under my configuration. However, my friend's Lenovo ThinkPad T61 (Intel Core 2 Duo T7250, nVidia Quadro NVS 140M display card) running Ubuntu 7.10 host with Compiz Fusion enabled and Windows XP SP2 guest but no such problem.

Another user also encounter this kind of problem. Please refers to the following link.  http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?p=16977#16977

I have also experienced this problem. Gateway CX210X Linux Mint 4.0 Host Debian 4.0 guest Had OSE version, uninstalled and installed PUEL version Loaded Debian 4.0 but would not capture the mouse. It will capture the keyboard though.

Same here on Ubuntu 7.10 with compiz fusion and any guest OS. It will capture the keyboard if autocapture keyboard is enabled. It worked perfectly in 1.5.4 and below.

Same problem with Ububtu 7.10 (32 bit) running on Atlon 64x2 4800+ with a nVidia GeForce 7600 GS and nvidia-glx-new package version 100.14.19+2.6.22.4-14.10.

With virtual machines build before switching to 1.5.6 and with VirtualBox Guest Additions installed there is no mouse capture problem. With liveCD the mouse is not captured except if Compiz Fusion is switched off.

Are you able to capture the mouse if you disable the message box (click on don't show this box again) and click into the VM window again?

I came here after having the same problem, and finding the ticket. I have Ubuntu 8.04 with an AMD64 CPU, running on 32bit Ubuntu with an integrated NVIDIA graphics card using their driver (current as of this post). I tried this, and my mouse began working in my new Windows XP Pro VM. I can't speak for the user you asked.

No, I can't.

I had the same problem with Debian Lenny as the host and Windows 98 (yeah there are some programs that need it) as the guest. Checking the 'do not show' box seems to cure it for me.
