#4835 closed defect (fixed)

virtualisation usability of frame

Reported by: quozl Owned by:

Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Minor Keywords: patch
Cc: Distribution/OS:
Bug Status: New


When Sugar is used in VirtualBox, the frame is difficult to activate using the mouse. As the mouse exits the emulation window toward the top left, the emulator stops delivering mouse events to the virtual machine before reaching coordinate (0,0).

Workarounds are either;

  • use the F6 shortcut key,
  • move the mouse very very slowly one pixel at a time until it reaches (0,0), or
  • turn off mouse integration mode (host+i).

A solution might be to enlarge the area of activation for the frame, from one pixel to 4, 9, 16, or 25 pixels. A further improvement may be to provide this as a slider in the frame control panel in My Settings.
