Xubuntu Seamless Mode

Postby MUB » 6. Dec 2017, 04:29

Running Xubuntu 16.04 host with win 7 guest and when activating seamless mode, the windows start/task bar is all white.. unusable.
Any solutions?

  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe error / Shutdown the VM.
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response (see the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form).

I think I have the same problem in Fedora 27 under MATE. Only in my case it is all transparent except for the mini-toolbar, which remains usable.

(includes entering and exiting from seamless mode)

I'm doing some testing and VirtualBox-5.2-5.2.0_118431 seamless mode still works ok, all the rest being equal.
