With VirtualBox VM in the foreground, cursor can't leave screen.

3 posts in this topic

When I have a VirtualBox VM in the foreground on my centos 6 synergy server, I can't move my cursor right to my windows 7 client. The cursor will remain invisible until I right-click.

If I minimize VirtualBox, everything goes back to working normally.

Ugh. Problem "fixed". I disabled "Auto Capture Keyboard" in VirtualBox. I hated that feature of VirtualBox anyway.
