Ticket #6937 (closed defect: fixed)
Mouse-over functionality in Linux/X.Org guest failing and link to dri driver missing -> fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||thomasd||Owned by:|
I run an up-to-date Arch Linux x86_64 as guest using their [testing] repository, which installs X.org Server 1.8.
I seem to have no mouse-over effects at all inside the guest. My window manager (wmii) normally has sloppy focus, i.e., focus follows mouse, but I have to click inside the windows to focus them. Also, in Firefox, menus that are based on the mouse-over effect on some sites do not work inside Virtualbox, I have to click the menus to open them.
Visit dpreview.com as an example for such a website. The upper menu is mouse-over. If I hover over "Reviews" nothing happens. If I click on "Reviews", two things happen: The drop-down menu opens and at the same time the link that "Reviews" includes is followed. So effectively, I cannot make use of the drop-down menu.
Another thing, don't know if it is related: If I mark text in any application, being Firefox or xterm or anything else, I see the marking only if I release the mouse button, not while marking the text.
Someone on this thread http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=31798&start=0 suggested to hold down a key while moving the mouse. And indeed, my window manager shows mouse-follows-focus again and browsing is also fine when holding the left Ctrl button while moving the mouse.
