Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 454938
Cursor Movement is Constrained
Last modified: 2009-03-25 12:48:50 EDT
Description of problem:
When using virtual graphical consoles after the pointer is grabbed
often the cursor is constrained away from one edges of the screen,
which is annoying.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: often
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start virtual machine from virt-manager
2. click to stay in window
3. move cursor around
Usually some part (edge) of the screen can't be reached without moving
first to the opposite edge.
Moving the mouse really fast also seems to "break through" the artificial barrier.
This bug was noticed noticed and fixed in 2007 but appears to have resurfaced.
The original BZ was 238825.
What gtk-vnc version ?
Please provide the guest config from 'virsh dumpxml NAME-OF-GUEST" & what OS is
installed in the guest ?
*** Bug 454948 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I had one guest that was PC-BSD and the other WinXP. I have already deleted
both guest images (due to another unrelated bug) but the problem surfaced even
during the install of both of these operating systems.
Problem still exists in rawhide
Reassigning to gtk-vnc, my guess is this isn't virt-manager specific.
gtk-vnc-0.3.8-2.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Should be fixed in gtk-vnc-0.3.8-2.fc10 and gtk-vnc-0.3.8-4.fc11
gtk-vnc-0.3.8-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update gtk-vnc'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F10/FEDORA-2009-2143
gtk-vnc-0.3.8-2.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
