Description of problem:
I usually run Live images from the commandline with:
qemu-kvm -m 1024 -vga qxl -usb -localtime -k en-us -boot d -cdrom live-image.iso
With F20 it seems that "-vga qxl" makes the mouse behaviour very strange.
Basically it is impossible to bring the mouse pointer into the qemu
guest console after one has clicked once: then the pointer is pushed out
of the top/left of the console window and all attempts to move it back in
reflect it back out again repeated making mouse actions impossible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run F20 qemu using qxl on a Live image.
2. Move mouse pointer into qemu console
3. Click mouse
4. Try to use mouse in the guest session.
2. No mouse pointer visible in console until one clicks mouse
3. Pointer jumps out of console to left or top of qemu window.
4. Impossible to use mouse in qemu guest under qxl vga.
4. Mouse to work with qxl as it did under F19.
This doesn't happen under virt-manager's qemu configuration
so that is why I am reporting this against qemu.
Before clicking the mouse, the pointer seems to move in and out
of the window normally but it is not visible and has no effect
(highlighting etc) on the desktop.
After one click the pointer jumps roughly like this:
(0,y) -> (-200,y+200)
(x,top) -> (x-200,top+200)
(right,y) -> (~y-200,top+200)
(x,0) -> (-200,~x+200)
Reproduces with qemu.git as well. Seems specific to the gtk frontend, using -sdl is a workaround for now.
