I installed openSUSE 11.2 in VirtualBox 3.1.2 (the latest one). It bootes ok but mouse and keyboard don't react. Is there a way how to make it work?

Thank you!

Are they USB? Try installing guest additions ( Devices -> Install Guest Additions ).

First, I tried to control the mouse via touchpad and then I tried to connect USB mouse and neither worked. Mouse pointer is still in the middle of screen. Devices->Install Guest Additions does nothing - I see no dialog window or anything. What should it do? – Martin Vseticka Dec 23 '09 at 22:06
Do you have an X Server installed? – John T Dec 23 '09 at 22:09
X server is gui, isn't it? I have. – Martin Vseticka Dec 23 '09 at 22:46

I give it up. Because I wasn't able to connect to the intenet and I couldn't even mount ISO image of openSUSE. I'll try a lower version of openSUSE, maybe there'll be less problems. – Martin Vseticka Dec 24 '09 at 14:57
