I'm trying to run VMware Workstation and/or VirtualBox on Ubuntu. The virtual machines are working perfectly in both applications, except for the extra mouse buttons (forward/backward). In Ubuntu the mouse buttons are all working.
Virtualization applications: VMware Workstation 10.0.1, latest VirtualBox
Ubuntu versions I tested as host: 12.04, 13.10, 14.04 beta
Guest OS I tested: Windows 7, several Linux OS in live-mode
Mice I tested (all with side buttons): Logitech M510 (unifying receiver), old Razer Copperhead, no-name-mouse
I already tried a lot of solutions I found online e.g. changing the mouse-settings in .vmx on VMware WS (mouse.vusb.enable, ...) , changing the input-settings on VMware/VirtualBox, reinstall guest tools on guest OS, ...
I think it's a problem in Ubuntu and not in the virtualization applications. Does anyone have a solution for this?
