Mouse can't work on Ubuntu Server (minmal virtual machine mode) in VBox VM. I ran:
sudo aptitude install --without-recommends xserver-xorg-core sudo aptitude install jwm startx
-bash: startx: command not found.
Update: OK, xinit was missing.
Update 2: So I ran:
sudo aptitude --without-recommends install xinit
installation ok, then:
/etc/X11/xinit/xserverrc: 3: exec: /usr/bin/X: not found
xinit: giving up
xinit: unable to connect to X server: Connection refused
xinit: server error
Update 3: Some package were left out! So I purged all before mentioned and reinstalled all three except no --without-recommends flag this time.
Apparently I can access the simple graphical desktop but with problems. Mouse won't move. Output from tty; can't roll up, it has cancel at this point (or has it ended outputing?)
loading extension GLX
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
Warning: Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but has 2 symbols
Ignoring extra symbols
Erros from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
Update 4: Installed guest additions and begins to master the game.
Thanks for your time.
