Mouse doesn't work in Debian Lenny (32- or 64-bit)

When I install Guest Additions on Debian (either 32-bit or 64-bit), all mouse clicks are focused on the lower-right-hand corner of the screen. Thus, I can only activate and deactivate the KDE calendar in the panel.

In my attempts to google for information, I learned of a rumor that installing Guest Additions via the repository fixes this problem; my attempts to do so using the 32-bit version resulted in failure for Guest Additions to work at all! (I'm not going to bother attempting to use the 64-bit repository for this...)

Of course, I'd *consider* running Debian without Guest Additions, except that the screen created is large enough to require scroll-bars, with no way to maximize the screen to get rid of those scroll-bars. Thus, I have to use Right-Ctrl to get out of the screen to use the panel, and then click on the panel, and then use Right-Ctrl to scroll up so I could access the window that was started at the top of the screen

Either way, it's officially A Painful Experience.

This should be fixed in 3.1.4 (specifically in the Guest Additions which come with that release) - could you please give that a try?

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Should definitely work with the VBox 3.1.8 additions. Closing.
