Description (last modified by michael) (diff)
The wheel of my USB mouse can be used inside my guest (Linux 2.6.32) after I boot the VM, but after a while it stops working.
On examining the mouse events with xev, when I scroll the wheel, mouse events _are_ being generated, but they are for buttons 6/7 (sideways scrolling)!
If I run xev before the wheel stops working, the events are generated for the correct buttons (4/5).
Disabling mouse integration does not help.
evtest also reports that buttons 6/7 are being pressed, so this does not appear to be a configuration issue: $ sudo evtest event4 Input driver version is 1.0.0 Input device ID: bus 0x11 vendor 0x2 product 0x6 version 0x0 Input device name: "ImExPS/2 Generic Explorer Mouse" Supported events:
Event type 0 (Sync) Event type 1 (Key)
Event code 272 (LeftBtn) Event code 273 (RightBtn) Event code 274 (MiddleBtn) Event code 275 (SideBtn) Event code 276 (ExtraBtn)
Event type 2 (Relative)
Event code 0 (X) Event code 1 (Y) Event code 6 (HWheel) Event code 8 (Wheel)
Testing ... (interrupt to exit) Event: time 1265938318.197278, type 2 (Relative), code 6 (HWheel), value -1 Event: time 1265938318.197291, -------------- Report Sync ------------ Event: time 1265938318.709651, type 2 (Relative), code 6 (HWheel), value 1 Event: time 1265938318.709664, -------------- Report Sync ------------
Interestingly, if I actually trigger my mouse's horizontal scrolling feature, no events are passed into the VM. The mouse works fine in the host OS however (Vista Home Basic SP1).
