Last modified: 2013-01-09 06:40:44 EST
Description of problem:
The mouse does not move in one of my guests when
viewed using virt-viewer or the virt-manager console.
However the mouse works fine in other guests.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This used to work ok in Fedora 13.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start guest.
2. Open console.

Ctrl+Alt releases the pointer in the usual way.

being "heard" by the guest.

Xorg logfile from inside the NOT WORKING guest.
Could be caused by this QEMU problem.
Yep the Xorg log shows the vmmouse was activated, so re-assigning to QEMU

(II) VMWARE(0): vmmouse is available
(II) VMWARE(0): VMMOUSE DEVICE_INIT
(II) VMWARE(0): VMMOUSE DEVICE_ON
(II) VMWARE(0): vmmouse enabled
