spacenavigator only works w/control panel in foreground

Post by jwillhite » Wed Dec 05, 2007 11:50 am

I'm running winXP Pro in VirtualBox on an Arch linux install bellow is the system information.

Host System=
Linux version 2.6.23-ARCH (gcc version 4.2.2) running XFCE4 desktop manager

Guest System=
WinXp Professional SP2
running on "VirtualBox Graphical User Interface Version 1.5.2"
with guest additions installed

Spacenavigator works perfectly using adt2007, inventor R10, and google earth as long as the navigator control panel is in the foreground. As soon as I move to the application window the navigator ceases to function. I've tried uninstalling the virtualbox guest additions software and disabling the mouse integration feature but the exact same thing happens. Any help or suggestions would be very much appreciated as the spacenavigator is useless to me in its current state.
