Linux Guest Additions cause animated cursor flicker
|Reported by:||PassinThru||Owned by:|
I'm running an Ubuntu 9.10 guest in VirtualBox 3.0.10 on a Windows XP SP3 host on a 2GB dual-core Dell Latitude D620 laptop. After installing 9.10 and updating to all the latest packages, the system runs fine, and animated/busy cursors are clean and solid. After installing Linux Guest Additions, the busy cursor flickers madly, to the point of distraction. Sometimes it will stay busy until I click outside of VirtualBox and then click back in again. This occurs in Ubuntu versions back to at least 8.04, as far back as I tested. In an attempt to eliminate the laptop hardware, I booted into Ubuntu directly, and again, the busy cursor was clean, solid and flicker-free.
