Ticket #184 (closed defect: fixed)
Invisible Cursor In Fullscreen Mode

|Version:||VirtualBox 1.3.6||Keywords:||cursor, disappearing cursor, fullscreen|
Using WindowsXP as the host and Ubuntu 6.10 as the guest machine, my cursor is invisible in fullscreen modes higher than 1024x768. My guest machine (Windows XP) resolution is set to 1152x864. When attempting to run Ubuntu at fullscreen using 1152x864 and the vboxvideo device in xorg.conf, my cursor disappeared but mouse functionality remained. I was able to duplicate the same behavior using the vesa device at the same resolution. I resolved the issue of the disappearing cursor by starting the virtual machine in fullscreen, booting into Gnome, switching to VirtualBox windowed mode, logging out of Gnome and restarting the X server...at this point when VirtualBox regains mouse control the cursor is visible and I can switch to fullscreen resolution while maintaining the visibility of the cursor. After this workaround, the mouse works perfectly.
