disable mouse pointer integration

Postby t-dome » 19. Jan 2010, 12:06

Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 as a guest and I just installed the guest additions. But the mouse pointer doesn't work in some full screen games anymore.
How can I disable the mouse pointer integration? This Ubuntu version uses no xorg.conf .

Thanks

The VBox menu for the VM has such option, Host+I.

Host+I doesn't do anything for me and I also cannot find an option in the menus.

I managed to disable mouse pointer integration by pressind the host key and then disable that option by right clicking on the mouse icon.
But now I don't see the cursor in linux anymore when the mouse is captured.
I just want to uninstall the mouse driver from Linux.

I have the opposite problem. I've installed the Lucid Linx on my Karmic Koala, using VBox 3.1.2. But the mouse integration does not work. Is it a Lucid problem or is there something else I should do?

Thanks
