Ticket #6215 (closed defect: worksforme)
Mouse hover events not sent to the VM -> assumed fixed post-3.1.4
|Reported by:||atoponce||Owned by:|
Since upgrading to 3.1.2, mouse hover events are not happening. I upgraded to 3.1.4, noticing some Linux guest additions improvements, hoping to see a fix, but nothing. I am running Debian GNU/Linux unstable as the guest operating system, and Windows XP SP3 as the host operating system. Attached is my VBox.log.
A description of the problem I'm facing is this: After GDM is loaded, and I'm sitting at a login prompt, hovering the mouse over the username field does not change the cursor to an I-bar. I must click the field to change the cursor. Which, of course, it will stay the I-bar until I click somewhere else to change the cursor back to an arrow.
Same after logging in. Hovering the mouse over menu items does not change the highlighted item until I click the mouse button. Hovering the mouse over images on the web does not display the title or alt text of the image, and so forth.
Mouse hover events are completely missing.
I've removed and reinstalled guest additions. This happened when I upgraded to 3.1.2. The vboxmouse driver is enabled in the Debian X11 xorg.config. I've downgraded VirtualBox to 3.1.0, and it seems to have kept the issue. I've even removed, and reinstalled, and no dice. Mouse hover events do not work, no matter what I throw at it.
