Problems emulating XP on Ubuntu

Postby Cor3y » 21. Oct 2008, 19:58

I installed VirtualBox OSE on my ubuntu sistem, emulated an hard disk and installed XP on it.
All works, but when i'm on the desktop on XP, it just don't captures my mouse or keyboard.
Can anyone help me understand why?

I checked the capture-key, and on the left side of virtualbox, he tells me he is capturing, but nothing happenes.

I think what you are looking for is called Guest Additions.

For OSE, you can grab the guest additions from here: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualb ... _2.0.2.iso
