I have an AMD A8 based HP laptop, Pavilion G6 2201AX running Windows 8. It has a Synaptics touchpad. My problem is whenever i run Virtualbox or Vmware player all the gestures on trackpad stop working, even though i can still move the pointer and can perform left click and right click using one and two fingers respectively. I have to restart the laptop in order to get these gestures work again.
What may be the cause of this? Is it a hardware or a software issue? Is there any solution?
