Guest Additions break mouse hover animations in Linux Mint 11, 12, & Open Suse

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host Windows 7 4GB DDR3 nVidia GForce 9800 GTX+ DDR3 512 (Asus)

Tried VBOX 4.1.6 and VBOX 4.0.6 Tried Linux Mint 11 x86_32 & x86_64 Tried Linux Mint 12 x86_64

Repratable bug: Before installing guest additions / DKMS Driver with 3D acceleration enabled and 128MB of supplied VRAM to the VM, window decorations work as normal. After installation: the decorations still appear, but do not animate on mouse hover (close, minimize, maximize), the pointer changes, the actions work, but no visual effects work.

Logging into Gnome safemode allows them to work again, but no 3D/OpenGL etc,

re-installation causes the same bug at the exact same time

installing via GUI, or via ctrl+atl+f1 at login screen for non-gui terminal causes the same bug.

using the same OS on my laptop - not in a VM with the same window decoration themes (any) works as expected with proprietary video driver.

I can't see this being a Compiz or OpenGL bug since following the same installation steps on my laptop precisely at the same time results in a working system, vs non-working on Desktop VM.

  • Keywords gnome DKMS close minimize maximize hover gtk theme removed
  • Component changed from GUI/compiz to 3D support

This problem has nothing to do with DKMS (which is only a helper for installing the kernel modules). And as long as no VirtualBox Guest Additions are installed, there is no 3D support for the guest at all, regardless of the VM setting.

Please attach a VBox.log file from such a VM session running on VBox 4.1.6.
