This is on a Linux (debian etch) host. VirtualBox was built with gcc 4.1.1 (plus debian patches).

Which window manager you are using at the host?

comment:3 by byron_clark, 17 years ago

The reported behavior occurs under ion3. I have since started running VirtualBox under the Openbox window manager and Alt-Tab keypresses appear to be caught by the window manager and never passed on to VirtualBox

I am using Ubuntu, gnome (metacity) also having this problem. VirtualBox version 1.3.8 deb package (not OSE).

comment:5 by xrfang, 17 years ago

also noted that this problem only happen when I run VBox in full screen mode, if I run in windowed mode, alt-tab is successfully caught by the guest.
