VirtualBox

Ticket #9660 (closed defect: obsolete)

Opened 3 years ago

Last modified 2 months ago

Switching to VirtualBox Ubuntu machine only shows some part of screen (rendering problem)

Reported by: conualfy Owned by:
Priority: major Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2 Keywords: render, screen,
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Linux

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

All the times I use the host machine and want to go back to the virtual machine (Ubuntu in full screen), the screen is a combination of host desktop&open_windows and a part (what is dynamic) of the virtual machine screen. See the attached screenshot as an example.

To repaint the screen, I must click on any running program's status bar.

Terminal is in virtualbox machine, everything else is from the Unity host.

Does disabling 3D passthrough fix this?

comment:2 Changed 3 years ago by conualfy

I don't know what 2D passthrough is, but if you're talking about 3D acceleration, it's activated. I would rather have it active as without that I cannot test the Oneiric Ocelot features.

3D, sorry for misspelled word.

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by conualfy

I've tested and it really is about 3D. I logged in using Unity 2D (3D still active in VirtualBox machine settings) and now it's rendered correctly. I see you already knew about this bug, is there a solution?

So far, the only workaround is to have composing manager running on your host system, like compiz/unity/aero etc.

comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by conualfy

I have Compiz running on Natty and also the bug on virtual machines.
