PLEASE always reply to the mailing list, too!

As to your problem: The tutorial I sent you works for me. Make sure to check the input devices on the domU with

cat /proc/bus/input/devices

That command will show you which event belongs to the emulated mouse, e.g. event3 --> /dev/input/event3. This has to be entered in the Xorg configuration. You have to configure the domU with


in order to have an absolute mouse position. Instead of entering the device yourself, you can also try the following

Section "InputDevice"
   Name "Mouse0"
   Driver "evdev"
   Option "Name" "QEMU 0.8.2 QEMU USB Tablet"
   Option "Mode" "Absolute"

Of course "Mouse0" then has to be entered in the ServerLayout section.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your response... i ve tried with the link which you pointed
to me. But its not working. Also i ve googled a lot,but not getting to
know how to solve it. Kindly point me the solution.

My Virtual Machine is Fedora 8.
The vm Configuration file is of type vnc.
I m using an image file to start the Virtual Machine.

This is because the emulated mouse gives relative movements and not absolute
pixel coordinates. You can change it to emulation of a USB tablet device
which sends these absolute values. Just search the Internet, there are
multiple solutions. For example
