I am using Ubuntu in VirtualBox and it works pretty fine, but there is a problem that I am having since I started using it. I use Emacs and therefore, I use a lot of combinations/shortcuts/bindings all the time. The problem is that when I press and hold a key, for instance, Ctrl for searching Ctrl+S, if I want to keep looking I just hold it, but in this VirtualMachine after a few seconds the Ctrl key is released (without me releasing it) and I finish writing a bunch of 's', in this case. Another simpler example would be, changing windows with Alt+Tab, after a while Alt is released and I end up pressing just Tab in the last window changed. I guess this has something to do with some kind of refreshing of the peripherals or something, but it is really annoying.
Any ideas on how to solve it?
Thanks a lot!
Murphy's Law working here. I have been having this issue for the last 3 months (since I started working with this virtual machine), but suddenly when I asked this question I works just fine. I guess I'll have to ask more often :) Anyway, I don't think this will last forever, so if anyone has any idea about why this is happening and how to avoid it, it would be great!
I knew I shouldn't have said anything. It is back! haha
