Ubuntu :: Cannot Access XP Taskbar In VirtualBox (fullscreen)

May 21, 2010

I upgraded to VirtualBox 3.2.0, and I finally installed Windows XP Professional onto it. Anyways, have any of you noticed that when you set the VM to fullscreen, you cannot access the taskbar at all? The icon for the cursor reverts to my Linux cursor, showing that the focus switched to Linux somehow in someway. The taskbar is set to always show, and this happens at the EXACT pixel that the panel starts at. It's pretty annoying if I say so myself. Forgot to mention, that this only happens with the mouse integration, and not mouse capture (for obvious reasons). Using: Windows XP Professional 32-bit (guest, and running SP3 with all updates) on VirtualBox 3.2.0 hosted by Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit (using KDE).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: VLC Fullscreen Doesn't Cover The Taskbar?

Dec 4, 2009

How can I fix the following, borderline irritating issue?

I've tried all of VLCs different Video Output Methods. It didn't use to have this behaviour either, it just began happening now. My taskbar is set to "Always Visible" as I hate "Auto Hide" and I don't want my windows to go above or below it...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Get 10 Fullscreen Using VirtualBox?

Nov 1, 2010

I am using VirtualBox and I installed the Guest additions successfully. Host F does not work as it is not the problem. The resolution under monitor is 800x600. I had the same problem in Fedora where I modified the xorg.conf however Ubuntu does not have the file located in /etc/X11/...

I tried adding it with the same xorg.conf from my Fedora Virtual machine but that screwed up my display and had to fix it from the terminal.

Not sure why Ubuntu 10 doesn't have an xorg.conf or how to fix the display if not from xorg.conf?

Debian Configuration :: Virtualbox Crashes When Fullscreen Is Activated

Sep 22, 2015

I have installed installed Debian 9 (stretch/unstable) which has GNOME 3.16.3 and runs Linux kernel 4.1.0-2 by default in Virtualbox 5.0. The host OS is Windows 8.1 On each instance of activating full screen mode in the VM, a freeze occurs then an abrupt close (abort).

I am inclined to believe that this problem resides in the OS (Debian 9) rather than Virtualbox or the Host. The reason being is that prior to installing Debian 9 (today) I had Jessie installed for quite some time where this error/issue never surfaced.

This issue is rather complicated in the sense that if alternating between full screen and normal mode quickly, this occurs whereas, if done every 10 seconds or thereabout it happens almost seamlessly. Also, if 3DAcceleration is switched off that doesn't occur.

How do I find the root of this problem and a resolution to it?

General :: Can't Access Mixer Window From Taskbar?

Mar 21, 2011

Lately I noticed that something seems to be blocking various audio controls - mixer mostly. I can't access mixer window from taskbar, my keyboard volume knob doesn't work, mute too. But - all the generated events are there, because when the problem goes away (usually in the range of 10-30 seconds), all the events that I generated (volume up/down, mute) are applied.

Straced kmix startup. And it looks like it was waitinf for some information from dbus - i see it sent and received some messages to fd=3 (which is earlier connected to /tmp/dbus-something), and then it waits 21 seconds!, and then it gets new message from dbus, message looks like:


It contains string "introspection" - no idea what it is about, but perhaps it could be related? I am very willing to do additional tests/straces/whatever to solve the problem,

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.10 - How To Access Network Drives On VirtualBox Guest OS

Feb 13, 2010

I currently have VirtualBox installed on my Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop. I have windows xp as a guest os and it has network shares on it. My question is, is there a way for another computer to access those network drives on the guest os in virtualbox? I don't want to search for hours on end on google, a simple no would be fine - however if it is possible let me know because when I am in windows on another computer that has windows as a host os it sees it in the windows network folder but it says "....network location not found" or something similar but it still shows a pc picture of the virtual os of the virtual box program running in ubuntu.

Debian :: VirtualBox Guest-only Internet Access

Aug 12, 2014

Is it at all possible to disable internet access for the Debian host while providing internet access to the VirtualBox guest(s)?

I plan to only hook up the host to the internet for updates, upgrades and installations, although if I can, then I will make a Debian guest to test everything out and download the files from there and install everything on the host without even a single host connection point.

Is this the indomitable approach to intercommunication security? If not, then what haven't I thought of yet?

OpenSUSE :: Access Web Server On VirtualBox Guest From Host OS

Sep 4, 2010

I used to be able to access the web server I had running on my guest OS in Virtual Box from my host OS. I also had it set to the network settings of "Host Only Adapter". Then I needed to access the internet directly on the gues OS, so I changed my settings on the guest OS to "NAT" (in virtual box), and in /etc/network/interfaces, I removed the loopback stuff and the static IP I'd put in. Now no matter what I do, I cannot get it back to being accessible from the host os! I even did a completely NEW install of Ubuntu guest OS in Virtual box Guest OS: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Host OS: OpenSUSE 11.3 VirtualBox: 3.2.6

General :: VirtualBox - Internet Access Via Guest OS (Windows)

May 20, 2011

I have an USB internet key (multimode GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA) that only works on Windows. Though, I mainly use Linux for development activities and I don't want to move them to Windows. For this reason I decided to use a Windows guest on VirtualBox for internet access and the Linux host for the other stuffs, but I'd greatly prefer to use Linux for everything (internet too) and Windows only as internet gateway.

After a reboot md5sum tests show consistent results, but a sum different from the original file.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Out Of Fullscreen In AisleRiot?

I have found on two computers that in AisleRiot, if you remove the status bar and menu bar, and go to full screen, there is no way back. Every time the program starts it is full screen, and even if you can get to the "Leave fullscreen" button, it still reverts to full screen almost immediately.I have tried deleting all the aisleriot folders under .gconf/ but it still behaves in the same way.

Mar 31, 2010

1. while playing any video file in VLC or any other player, i try to fullscreen or back to normal then the VLC just stopped for 5-7 seconds, video is running but in the screen it does not show running just sound comes.

Ubuntu :: Fullscreen Flash Hack / What To Do?

Nov 28, 2010

Any 1 who uses Linux knows that one problem with many distros (if not all) can't play flash videos fullscreen and change volume at the same time. Very very very very annoying.

But I think I might have come across a fix possibly probably not but who knows!!!

Here is the story. I was on my windows partition playing some games, but i also wanted to watch hulu on my second screen. To my amazement flash would exit full screen (on second screen) when it became out of focus because of a click on my main screen. so i did a search on the web and they have a flash hack that keeps it from exiting when it loses main focus. This is what we need!! can some1 with slightly more hacking know-how then me make this hack work for us over on linux?

here is the link

Ubuntu :: Fullscreen Application Hangs?

Apr 6, 2011

ll the time for me and when they do, I can't do anything.The typical case for me:Trying to run something, application hangs.The screen is either black or an image of the previous used app (aka not responding).This is when i try all sorts of key-combinations to get out of it to either get to a console or some other way to shut the crashed application down, but since the application is crashed and all the keys are overrided (either that or not responding), I cant do anything.Things I've tried pressing:

ctrl+alt+delete (you never know if something useful will happend (: )
ctrl+alt+f1 (I actually thought this would work, but no)
alt+tab (this was my second hope!)
