cannot click on host or guest after Ubuntu host upgrade

Postby andrewz » 25. Sep 2021, 00:59

After upgrading my host Ubuntu 20.04 to Ubuntu 21.04, I am having issues with the mouse (touchpad).

Symptoms
* Cursor moves properly for host and guest (good).
* Problem sometimes does not happen right away. At first, it works fine.
* Later, touchpad click does nothing for host and guest


System
* VirtualBox Version 6.1.26 r145957 (Qt5.15.2) installed from virtualbox.org
* VirtualBox extension pack 6.1.26r145957
* Host: Ubuntu 21.04
* Guest: Windows 10 20H2 and other Windows 10 builds
* Hardware: Lenovo IdeaPad 330s-15ikb
* Single screen
* Guest is set to USB Tablet

Steps I tried
* Search for solutions online
* While VM is running, disable and reable mouse integration
* Plug in hardware USB mouse, unplug it, and plug it back
* Use touchpad instead of mouse.
* Put guest in full screen or windowed mode
* Reboot guest
* Reboot host
* Look for VBoxClient to kill, but it did not exist https://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/14903

Does the click failure ever happen when no Virtualbox VMs or windows are running?

No, it only happens when a VM is running. Once the problem starts, I can reliably resolve it (temporarily) by closing the VM. During the shut-down progress while the progress bar is loading, the problem exists, but i's fixed instantly once the VM is fully closed.
