I am using Traditional Chinese version of Ubuntu 8.04 (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS SE instead). It comes with SCIM. I also have a nVidia GeForce 8500GT display card and Compiz Fusion enabled.
When using Virtualbox 1.6.0 with Compiz Fusion enabled on Traditional Chinese version of Ubuntu 8.04, the keyboard and mouse do not be captured. How to solve it? Let’s have a look.
For the keyboard :
sudo apt-get install scim-bridge-client-qt scim-bridge-client-qt4
For the mouse :
disabled the Compiz Fusion.
Make sure you have added yourself to the vboxusers.
