Mouse cursor in KVM guest


On windows guest, the mouse movement is a bit jerky.

Solution one

Add -usb -usbdevice tablet to qemu commandline. The host’s mouse position will be used in the guest even without having to click inside the window to give it focus.

Solution two

Using virt-manager, the equivalent for that is to open up the virtual machine details > Add Hardware > Input > EvTouch USB Graphics tablet.
