CTRL key released by Virtualbox during combination: auto capture!

Postby Frenchwhois » 8. Nov 2017, 18:57

Hi!

I'm running 64bit Debian host with LXDE, Virtualbox 5.1.22 and I had an issue with keyboard combination : When selecting several items in the guest (Windows or Linux, no matter), for example files in an explorer, my selection was lost after few clicks, like if I had released the <CTRL left> key during the selection with the mouse.

To select items, I use the <CTRL left> key + several <left click> on the mouse

My host key was <CTRL right> and I tried to change, but it didn't solved. I also tried to update Guest addition... the same
I tried to understand using the tool XEV and found out host key was sometimes pressed/released during my selection with the CTRL left release result (of course, I was not clicking on CTRL right during the selection!)

After several tests, I disabled the auto capture keyboard option and it solved my issue.

Hope it can help.
