Ticket #4506 (closed defect: fixed)
Mouse not followed by GUI elements in guest -> fixed in SVN/upcoming version 3.0.6.
|Reported by:||CaptainFlint||Owned by:|
I upgraded VB 2.2.4 to 3.0.2. After I updated Guest Additions in my openSUSE VM, the mouse pointer is no longer detected by the GUI elements. For example, when I move the mouse over tabs, buttons, desktop icons, they do not get highlighted. Besides, the mouse pointer shape remains unchanged: if it was a normal "arrow" pointer, it remains so even over the text edit fields, over hyperlinks, over window borders, etc. Only when I perform a click, it is detected, the click works (i.e. the button is pressed), and only then the mouse pointer takes the correct shape — and now this new shape becomes "sticked" and remains so until I click anywhere else.
I tried Guest Additions 3.0.0, and there was the same problem. Then I installed GA 2.2.4, and the mouse worked fine. Also I tried installing GA 3.0.2 and replacing only the vboxmouse driver with the one from 2.2.4, and this combination worked fine either. So, probably, there's something broken with the mouse driver in guest additions since 3.0.0.
