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).

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?

However, when I boot to the ubuntu CD, I can use the menus from the bottom, and select the language when initially prompted, but I can't select any of the menu options except for boot from first hard drive.

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

Sep 12, 2010

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!)

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 and, when using Hulu, if I try and enter Fullscreen Mode, Firefox crashes to the desktop. Is this a known bug? Is there a fix for it? Any idea what could be causing it? I'm using fglrx for my integrated ATI card, by the way, but the standard open-source drivers made video choppy, and I had the same problem with Hulu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fullscreen Video Won't Work?

Jun 21, 2011

I'm using ubuntu 11.04 with Unity 2d as my hardware is too old to run the original one. I was previously using Lubuntu but after a slight RAM upgrade decided to use Ubuntu. Now I can't watch full screen video's online which is not the problem as it's always been like this with every distro I've used but now I can't even watch full screen videos in VLC, totem or any other media player for that matter, it'll either lag or completely freeze my system and this worked in Lubuntu fine
