RE: [Xen-users] winXP (guest): mouse not workling, keyborad partially


        I've got the similar effect - look into the attachment. Nobody
helped mi till now. Do You use the ATI grapinc card with fglrx driver?
That's look to be the source of the problems by me till now. After I've
istelled it, I had the same effect You have. So maybe try some other driver
for the graphic card, something basic, to test if this is really the matter
of the problems. Please let me known if You've solved this problem.

Subject: [Xen-users] winXP (guest): mouse not workling, keyborad partially

Hi all,

I have two problems with XEN and as guest OS winXP.

Under my installed guest OS winXP (SP 2) is the mouse not working.
When I do the first klick in the guest-window, the mouse pointer disappers
and never comes back. Mouse in principle is workling (a right klick offers
me the context menue of the bottom status bar), but moving of the mouse
shows no effect.
During the setup of Windows its the same problem.

The second problem reflects the keyboard. I have a german keyboad, but on
the guest OS I just have a english one (and missing some keys).

Some other information:
Hardware: Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad T60
Radeon Mobility X1400 (with actual driver vom ATI: 8.35.5)
USB mouse

Distribution: opensuse 10.2, all actual patches

            I run Xen on Ubuntu 6.06 with Gnome desktop. I can start Windows as DomU without problems, everything works fine (w2k server32 bit or w2k3 server 64 bit).

            Because I use the notebook HP nx9420 which has a wide screen, I installed into X11 the driver fglrx which supports the given resolution mode 1680x1050.

            Now, with the new driver The Gnome desktop works good on the new (full) resolution, but after I start the Windows DomU (does not matter which), after the boot the cursor appears there on the central position on the screen – so it looks normally, but after I’ve clicked into the “Windows” window and moved by the mouse, the mouse cursor disappeared and is invisible. Windows detect still the mouse as normal PS/2 compatible mouse, but the mouse is not visible in DomU. After I press Ctrl-Alt the normal mouse appears again in X11, but in Windows – nothing. If I change the resolution to the original one with the new driver, this effect is still here. If I use the old xorg.conf for the desktop, the mouse behaves correctly.

            Ok, I thought this could be the problem of the driver also, but – I’ve figured out the mouse cursor not only disappeared, it is also moved to the bottom right corner – if I click on the right mouse button there apperars in windows desktop the menu in the bottom right corner – no matter how I move by the mouse, the menu comes still in the bottom right corner, like the movement of the mouse would be ignored. So maybe the cursor is not visible, because it is just “out of the desktop” and hits desktop only by 1 point in the bottom right corner.


            I use normally touchpad, by I’ve tried also the mouse, I’ve tried the drivers for synaptics directly or the general mouse driver, no change.


            So I guess – if it is really so the cursor is visible, but does not react on movements – this could be rather the problem of Xen and not of the driver, because I think the graphic card driver should not influence the movement of the mouse (only the cursor visualization, if even something)...


            Can anyone help me with this issue? Sure, I can also live with the old driver, but then everything on the desktop is a little bit deformed, because the 1280 points are spread to 1650, so everything is deformed... And I thik generally there should be “no reason” why the Dom0 graphic driver should influence the mouse movements in DomU


            Ay help or advice would be appreciated.


                        Greetings, Archie.
