Is it possible to see normal mouse operation in Android-x86 inside Oracle Virtual Box?

There are few apparent options for mouse, but neither work well

enter image description here

I can't find "Mouse Integration" option as was recommended in some old answers.

    Machine->Disable Mouse integration. Or Host + I, to disable/enable it. I am using VBox 4.3.18. Dec 12, 2014 at 13:10
  • I have the same question, but I don't virtualize it in a vm. It's installed on the disk.

You can do the following:

  1. Make sure the VM is powered off
  2. Click on the VM name
  3. Settings > System > Motherboard
  4. Change Pointing Device to PS/2 Mouse

Yes, it is possible to see normal mouse operation... by turning off the Mouse Integration option as you alluded to. And:

"In VirtualBox 5.1.22, the Mouse Integration option is in the Input menu."

On Virtual Box for Mac, there is an Input menu when the virtual box is running:Virtual Box menu

On other platforms, I imagine it would be in the equivalent to a menu bar that you have in that platform. If you tell what platform you are running virtualbox on, perhaps I could help with that.
