[Bug 177510] Re: Impossible to switch workspace on compiz when VirtualBox is opened
Yes it was exclusive to compiz, but not anymore in karmic where this
problem affect both compiz and metacity. Description of the bug updated
for that purpose.
** Description changed:
- This problem doesn't appear with metacity, it only appears with compiz.
If I open a VirtualBox guest system like Windows XP in VirtualBox, I
can't switch to another workspace using CTRL + ALT + Right/Left Arrow or
with CTRL + ALT + Holding mouse.
What's really strange about that bug, it's that if I use the compiz cube
plugin with transparency and that I try to initiate the cube with CTRL +
ALT + Holding mouse, the desktop background will become transparent, but
the cube won't initiate. This bug can sometime lead to more dramatic
problems like loosing access to windows in each workspace.
Steps to reproduce the bugs are :
1. Make sure Compiz is enabled
2. Open a guest operating system in VirtualBox
3. Press CTRL + ALT + Right/Left arrow to switch to another workspace, it won't work.
