Ticket #16681 (new defect)

Virtual core XTEST pointer/keyboard inoperative under X11

Reported by: gingerale Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 5.1.20
Keywords: input drivers xorg x11 Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows

Description

Guest: Arch Linux LTS 4.9.23-1 x64; also happens on Arch Linux 4.10.10-1 Host: Windows 10 Pro x64, Intel Core i7

Started happening after an update to VirtualBox 5.1.20. Downgrading on guest side to 5.1.18 had no effect. Unrelated to window manager, happened using X11 default as wel.

Found a workaround by adding two configuration files to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ first to define keyboard to use evdev drivers and mouse to use libinput drivers.
