Re: vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running

I apologize to the forum but I don't seem to see a fix.

Do I remove the packages from synaptic?
guest addition module source for dkms
non-X11 guest utilities
X11 guest utilities

those seem to be the only virtualbox things installed.
I don't want to ruin my setup. HELP!

Re: mouse movement opens folder

any ideas why my mouse functions are behaving incorrectly.

mouse movement opens folder

LM 17
when I try to left click hold to drag folder on desktop it opens the folder.
Also right click mouse on folder opens menu but letting go makes the drop down disappear. I thought a right click opens the menu and lets you choose option then left click?
What is going on?
