I am using Ubuntu 18.04 as the host, VirtualBox 6.0.8 and Ubuntu 18.04 Live CD as a guest (it is not installed).
I am trying to use the built-in recording function of VirtualBox 6.0.8 (Machine / Screen / Recording), and it works very well, except that it does not register the mouse pointer in the video.
Through # 12287 (VBox 4.3.2 Video capture without cursor) – Oracle VM VirtualBox, I learned:
I'm not sure if we're going to change this. The cursor is usually drawn by the host, not the guest. To be drawn by the guest (and include the mouse cursor in the video), disable mouse integration.
I have done a lot of things:
- Try disabling the mouse integration from the bottom menu: it really does not matter, the mouse integration icon turns gray when it is outside the VM window, and it is activated again anyway when I click on the guest window of the VM so that it is focused
- Through https://superuser.com/a/1390258/39752 -> "go to the & # 39; Motherboard & # 39; tab and on the pointing device, choose & # 39; USB Tablet & # 39; instead of & # 39; Mouse PS / 2 & # 39; – it does not work
- I tried to install Guest Additions from the CD after I started the live CD image, and did not install Guest Additions -> it does not work either
- Through gnome-control-center in VirtualBox Ubuntu live-cd guest? -> In "VirtualBox> Settings> Screen" for the guest, try the "Graphics Controller" in both VBoxSVGA and VMSVGA – without changes, the mouse pointer is not yet in the video capture
Does anyone have any idea on how I can capture the mouse pointer in a VirtualBox video recording of a Live CD guest of Ubuntu 18.04?
