Seamless mode is not working

Postby bigjl » 17. May 2012, 13:31

When I hit "Ctrl + L" or select "seamless mode" from the menu. Ubuntu covered the whole screen and blocked the desktop of my windows 7.
I have attached a screen shot for it.
Any one has the same problem?
Any idea of solving this problem?
Thanks.

Using Compiz in seamless mode is a know issue and has not been resolved. Launch the Ubuntu guest in Unity 2D instead and see if that works.

Thanks for your reply. Did you mean that to select "2D" on the login screen?
If yes, I tried but didn't work. :(
Thanks.

Then this should be reported to bugtracker. If you have not signed on to Bugtracker before you will need to select a new Nickname to be able to report issues.
It would also help if you can post the ticket number here so other can see the progress, add information, or see the final results.

I have the same problem here, with an OSX 10.8 host, Ubuntu guest, on a dusl screen setup. When activating the seamless mode, the guest goes full screen on one of the monitors instead...
