Hi all,
For the first time I have set up a qemu-kvm virtual machine on my Debian Linux system. I then loaded a Ubuntu guest. Everything works OK except the cursor. If I press the left key of my mouse and try to drag something on the screen the dragged object jumps all over the place. The cursor movement with out the mouse button is not as bad but still is erratic. If I hit ctl-alt to release the cursor the problem disappears. I hated the Gnome desktop so I ripped out Ubuntu and loaded Kubuntu. There was no change in the problem.

I found one fix that said to do the following:
go to virtual machine details > add hardware > input > EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet. this is supposed to fix the problem somehow. But there is a problem with this. When go to the virtual machine manager window and click on vm details the window closes back to the tray at the bottom of the screen.

This problem is very annoying and has been around for a while. I want a solution where I don't have to write a whole bunch of code. Not very good at it.

Please help

Gary R.
