Hi,

I’m VNCing into my KVM server and opening virt-manager.

When trying to manage a newly created guest, I’m finding the mouse pointer stays on the outside of its virtual machine window.

Any insight as to why its tracking so oddly?

Thanks in advance,

  • I’ve run into the same issue, screwing around with CONTROL-ALT-L, which is supposed to get you out of the window not in it, restarting the virtual manager, etc, eventually something seems to snap and it works, but I’ve not been able to determine either why it messes up or what corrects it.

    Another odd issue, I can get the freenx-server to work fine from guests but not from the host with the bridge. I’ve noticed that oddities that happen with the mouse with VNC don’t happen with nx, so I’d really like to get that to work on the host.
