I'm using QEMU with VNC for display running a Windows XP guest OS. When I connect with a VNC client, the mouse pointer position is pretty badly correlated to where my real mouse pointer is.

Is there an absolute pointing device option that can be used with the VNC display interface??

  • What VNC client are you using? I'm having the same problem...

Adding the '-usbdevice tablet' option to my qemu command fixed the problem for me.
