Mouse pointer Issues in graphics applications
|Reported by:||markspvb||Owned by:|
I have tested on three systems running Ubuntu 11.04 with unity. P4 with Nvidia, Core 2 with Intel graphics and AMD with ATI graphics. Problem is the same regardless of host 32bit or 64bit OS. Virtualbox is 4.1.0
Problem is with 32bit Win XP SP3 guest - when 4.1 additions are installed mouse pointer seems "inaccurate" resulting in difficulties to manipulate objects in graphics packages. Downgrading guest additions to 4.0.12 resolves the problem.
Problem is easily repeated with CorelDraw 11. 1 create a square object, 2 convert object to curves, 3 with the "pick" tool selected move mouse over each of the four nodes. Correct behavior is that as mouse is over a node tool should change from pick to node edit however with additions 4.1.0 this is erratic and often never happens at all. Other less consistent problems are also occurring, for example on complex graphics it is sometimes impossible to select an object. Again this problem only manifests when additions 4.1.0 are installed on the guest.
I have tried disabling both 2d and 3d acceleration but this did not resolve the problem. I expect this bug will cause problems in other applications too where manipulation of graphics is needed.
