Description
can not see mouse in guest when lanch the guest with virt-viewer, but it can use if there is X windows installed in guest, just can not see it.

Version:
libvirt-1.1.0-1.el7.x86_64
virt-viewer-0.5.6-1.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Prepare a X window installed guest, and start it.

2.Use virt-viewer to connect it:
# virt-viewer guest

3.After guest setup, there is no mouse in guest, but move it can see some place will light and dim, and can click if move to a right place.

Actual results:
As steps

Expected results:
Should see the mouse in guest.

Additional info:
There is another virt-manager bug: 980714, I think they are not the same bug.

Comment 2 EricLee 2013-07-05 06:41:13 UTC
Sorry for wrong judgement of exsiting bug 980714, they should be the same root reason causeed:
This only reproduced in the guest with spice+qxl as graphic type, not reproduced in a vnc guest. And the error in qemu/guest.log is the same as the bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=980714, so I think it is the same issue displaying in different kinds of component.

Comment 3 Christophe Fergeau 2013-11-04 12:14:50 UTC
Most likely the same as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=981094
The proper fix belongs to qemu, but I don't know if RHEL7 qemu has the needed patch. However, libvirt 1.1.1 has a workaround for this, so this bug should no longer occur.

Comment 4 Christophe Fergeau 2013-12-18 11:15:04 UTC
Eric, are you still seeing this? I did not hit this when using remote-viewer on RHEL7.

No, I can not reproduce it both in virt-viewer and remote-viewer with package:
libvirt-1.1.1-15.el7.x86_64
qemu-kvm-rhev-1.5.3-21.el7.x86_64

Comment 6 Christophe Fergeau 2013-12-19 09:17:40 UTC
Ok, thanks for confrming! It was probably the same bug as bug #981094
Closing this bug now.
