Debian as VirtualBox guest


Hello,

I have VirtualBox 3.1.2r56127 running on WindowsXP host, and Debian Lenny as guest. Everything seemed to work before I finished the vboxadd setup adding
VirtualBox client support. Now the mouse responds to right click opening a menu in right bottom
corner of the window, but nothing else works mouse wise.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Yes, I do. When I uninstall VirtualBox Guest Additions I can use mouse at my Debian guest.

I've installed the VirtualBox Guest Additions 3.0.12. Now my guest Debian works fine.
