Weird behaviour on Centos 7.6 Live Gnome

Postby Simple07 » 17. Dec 2018, 16:30

Having installed Centos Live Gnome 7.6 as Guest on VirtualBox RC1, performed updates and installed Guest Additions. Whenever there is more than one item on the desktop, such as an open Firefox instance and a Terminal, the mouse does not seem to function properly.

Occasionally, I cannot switch between the various instances on the desktop, or the icons to close them etc..

The PS2 mouse does not function properly from the installation get go.
The table and Multitouch do better but not perfect.

Simple07,
That's got nothing to do (fortunately) with the 6.0.0 beta. This is all RHEL/CentOS 7.6. See: Mouse only usable within single application after mouse click on RHEL 7.6 (#18124) for the symptoms and the cure.
