View Full Version : [ubuntu] VBoxGTK and win2000

February 12th, 2009, 06:26 PM
I installed VBoxGTK on my 8.10 install, Then made all the things (Virtual hdd, ect.). So i got all to work on my first try.
I then installed Win2000 server as a virtual machine, installation went well and all seems to be working.
Now my problem is, when i start the v-machine and i click on the window, the mouse gets stuck to window...
How do i get back to my ubuntu?
Another Problem is "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to log in"
This Doesn't work???

Thanx in advance for any help

at the bottom of the virtual machine window there's a little thing that tells you how to un-capture your mouse, I think it's like control-click or something.

As for ctrl-alt-delete, you need to select it from (i believe) a drop-down menu in virtual box. Special key combos like that are handled differently by the OS and window system, so you can't just press them

To release the mouse from VBoxGTK, just press the right ctrl key.
