Virtualbox: Fix Mouse Integration Issue In Ubuntu Intrepid Guest

If you have installed Ubuntu Intrepid as a virtual machine in your Virtualbox, you will find that the mouse integration does not work, even after you have installed the guest addition.

If you are having this problem, here’s the fix:

First, make sure that the guest addition is already installed inn your Ubuntu Intrepid guest.

Open a terminal, type

gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Add the following lines to the end of the file. Save and close

Section “InputDevice”
Identifier “Configured Mouse”
Driver “vboxmouse”
Option “CorePointer”
EndSection

Restart the computer. The mouse integration should work now.
