strange VirrtualBox behavior re Mouse integration with XP client
I've got all my USB devices working the latest version of VB with XP Pro as a client.....however, here's the problem....I can NOT use my mouse as integrated on the Client and Slack Desktop....my touchpad YES, but not my mouse (wireless usb logitech nano) unless I disable mouse integration, then I can't use it in linux, but I CAN use it in XP....here's the weird part....with integration ON, the touchpad works with both XP and Linux seamlessly. The mouse I can see moving around the screen like with an 'invisible curser'...that is I can see it highlight things, but no cursor. It seems to be problem with the touchpad....can the touchpad be preempting the mouse somehow? Got to be VB guest additions bug or a setting somewhere....if anyone has a clue I'd appreciated because I can not use my mouse when I minimize the VB Xp Client....touchpad yes, but that doesn't cut it. thanks for any assistance!! I need to work out of the VM, but need mouse integration, not touchpad integration. I don't remember how to disable the touchpad to try that....xorg?
PS: I couldn't download the 2.1.4 version of VB...server problem.
