Mint 14.1 ISO with Cinnamon, in Virtual Box on a Windows 8 machine: The slightest movement of the mouse, scroll wheel, or even just a left click, randomly toggles the Workspace OSD, when I am nowhere near the magic corner. I found the OSD settings and unchecked the box that I believe should disable OSD altogether, but the issue remains. This is obviously a showstopper for getting anything done when ~4x / minute I have to toggle back to desktop with an otherwise extraneous mouse click to regain control of the current desktop / workspace.
Does anyone have any idea why this behavior is occurring and what I can do to resolve it? I am new to Linux as of today. I would love the Workspace feature, if I could control it.
I understand forum etiquette and did my searches, reading documentation and whatnot, but could not find any topics that resembled my current issue. I would like to stick with this distro for a while, as I am considering making my x86 machine a dual boot Linux/Windows affair. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
UPDATE 2: VMWare Player does not exhibit the issue. Confirmed with multiple installs that, at least for me and my setup,the issue is confined to VirtualBox. I was dual booting OK with Ubuntu, except it broke my hardware (specifically, quad on-board speakers w/ sub-woofer) with no apparent driver support, so back to virtual for now with this setup . I am enjoying using Mint without all the flakiness that was VirtualBox.
UPDATE 1: I "solved" the issue by going dual-boot, albeit with Ubuntu at the moment as Ubuntu manages to install and boot on my HP UEFI machine, whereas I have yet to get Mint to install or boot successfully. I am leaving this post without the solved tag up top as I never did solve the issue in Vbox. Cheers all, and here's to UEFI! <sarcasm>
