Using kvm with reverse vnc - mouse position is totally off!


Hi all!

Having a serious problem with my mouse and a Windows 2003 server guest on KVM. I use reverse vnc, and the vncviewer of tightvnc.
Even after setting the resolution of the guest to 1024x768 (which usually takes care of any mouse troubles in VMware and/or Virtualbox), my mouse is still totally off and next to impossible to use…

Any suggestions anyone?


Hi I’ve been using kvm since version kvm-14, have the same problem.
I only use VNC for installs, afterwards i remote desktop with a windows machine or use tightvnc with linux to access X remotely.


Adding the following parameter

will fix your problems. :slight_smile:
