  • Summary changed from Mouse coursor wrong coordinates to Guest Win fullscreen: Wrong mouse coursor coordinates

I am having the same problem. I have it with hosting on Solaris 10 and Vista. In both cases the Guest is Ubuntu Linux.

On Solaris I am using Remote Desktop (from a Mac).

pax, I assume you installed the guest additions?

comment:4 Changed 5 years ago by pax

Argh... RTFM it is...

Now I have a networking problem however... On the Vista Host I now had to do the network bridge to get the Linux Guest to access the internet. So far I haven't found the magic for the Linux Guest on Solaris to do the same - it can access the local network, but can't seem to get to the outside world.

Replying to ares:

Doesn't fixed in 3.0.4

As you can see in 2curs.gif there are 2 cursors

#1 - Host system cursor (WindowsXP) #2 - Guest system cursor (WindowsXP, Guest addition installed, text full screen mode)

ares, the problem you mention here can't be fixed. In your guest there runs a DOS box. If mouse integration is enabled, the guest mouse cursor is invisible and the position of the host mouse pointer is submitted to the guest. This does not work for DOS boxes as there is no special guest mouse driver for DOS --- and we don't plan to develop such a driver.

Replying to frank:

That the problem:

and the position of the host mouse pointer is submitted to the guest.

You give wrong position - as it should be for graphic mode but guest OS work in text mode and your graphic driver know about it! OS mouse driver know about text mode and interpret you coordinates as count of symbols not points.

P.S. Actually I show not DOS box app but NT text mode app :)
