A. Microsoft partnered with Xen to create an add-on for the Hyper-V Linux Integration Components, Satori, that enables mouse integration.

Download the add-on from http://www.xen.org/products/satori.html and insert the downloaded ISO into the Linux distribution. Run the commands below to install:

  • mkdir /opt/linux_satori

  • mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

  • cp /mnt/cdrom/* /opt/linux_satori -R

  • /opt/linux_satori/setup.pl inputdriver

Click to expand.
