Wacom pan/scroll facility does not work when VirtualBox has focus, but does work when it does not

Reported by: gkholman Owned by:
Component: guest control Version: VirtualBox 5.0.28
Keywords: wacom Cc:
Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


I am running a Mac Sierra host with a Windows 10 guest. In the guest I am running Firefox with a lengthy web page longer than the height of the window.

I have long lived with the Wacom pan/scroll not working in the Windows 10 guest, but today I accidentally discovered a condition when it does work. I used a habit motion without being prepared as I usually am. This brought out the contrast in behaviours.

When the guest virtual machine has the application focus, pan/scroll does not work.

When I move the application focus to another Mac application, say Folder, and while the focus remains there in Folder I do pan/scroll in the virtual machine, the application in the virtual machine response to the activity. As soon as I move the focus to the virtual machine, the facility disappears.

I have configured my Intuos Pro M tablet to engage pan/scroll on the pen click and drag function. Works fine in Mac apps. Works fine in the virtual machine when the virtual machine does not have focus. Does not work in the virtual machine when the virtual machine has focus.

In this example I am using pan/scroll to scroll the web page in the browser in the guest machine.

I hope this helps!

Please attach a log file from running a virtual machine. It provides lots of information about your system which can help analyse problems. You reported this against VirtualBox 5.0. Have you tried 5.1?
