As it was mentioned in the comments above, there is reference for Android X86 – mouse support in Oracle VirtualBox linked in this answer. AFAIK I had not to install additional packages like vbox-guest-utillities. As you can see the following list is empty: $ dpkg -l | grep virtualbox-guest $ dpkg -l | grep vbox-guest I only had to change the "Pointing ...

Smartphones and tablets have an obvious problem with events like mouseover: When there’s no mouse cursor, there’s no way to mouse over controls. Some techniques may be applied as a work around, but it's hard to have them working decently. Testing: with minimal success Don't know what browser are you using, but with my phone: Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; ...

As Liam W suggested, have you tried the any of the developer options? On at least 4.0 (ICS) and higher (and perhaps older versions, someone else will have to verify) in Settings > Developer Options check out Show Touches and Pointer Location (screenshots and short descriptions here). Neither are exactly what you're looking for, but perhaps you'll find them ...

Yes, you need an OTG cable. The pin layout is different than a regular micro USB to USB cable; essentially, it's equivalent to shorting pins 4 and 5 on a normal cable. This is what causes the phone to know that it needs to be the host rather than the slave. In fact, you can do this yourself if you're handy with electronics and have a cable you don't mind ...

OTG needs to be supported at the kernel level and you device does not appear to have that with stock kernel as you can see from cursory Google search. Samsung S5 mini supports Gamepad through OTG? offers a way of flashing a custom kernel to override this limitation pointing to a XDA thread. You would need root to attempt this Perhaps some videos which ...

I just usually long-press the item until I get the popup menu from the browser, press back to hide the menu and the hover is activated. Not a foolproof method but works most of the time. This way I can be almost sure that the tap doesn't send a click event. Tested on 3.2, 4.0, 4.0.2 vanilla browsers and Chrome/Chrome beta on ICS.

In many apps, if you click with the left button once and then click again and hold it down, you should be able to zoom in and out while dragging the mouse up and down.

I have the same issue from Android x86 6 upper version in VBox. It runs in a MacBook Pro Late 2013 with 16GB RAM. I tried to set different size of CPU/RAM/VideoRAM but no help. When I installed it in VMWare, there is no such issue. So it looks related to VBox.

This answer shows that you can capture touch input from the raw device (`/dev/input/event2') to a file, and then play it back whenever you like. You could then automate an event to play back the captured touch input each time you want to scroll.

To connect any device to your Galaxy S3 (or any other host-capable Android device), you need a OTG host cable. Without that host cable, the phone doesn't know it's supposed to act as the host rather than as a peripheral. This is an example of such a cable. Most online retailers carry similar ones.

I happen to have got a Redmi Note 3 (Snapdragon) just recently and also have CM13 on it, and my Bluetooth keyboard/mouse combo connects and functions just fine. All I can say is that your mouse might be faulty - test it somewhere else.

It's pretty simple if you're using Android 4.0 or later. Just go to Settings > Developer Options > Show Pointer location (or Show touches, whichever works) and toggle that on. Note: If you don't see the developer options, you need to go to Settings > About Phone and tap on Build number several times.

Instead of trying to move the cursor to areas where the touch is not working, temporarily moving the screen to the area where touch is working looks like better alternative to this problem. Niwatori-one-hand-mode app in xposed framework, gives options like that. Using this app along with other Launcher apps like LMT (launch bar) app solves this problem for ...

Yes they will work. If the keyboard & mouse supports windows, then they should work via remote desktop. Be sure to have the latest version of the app!

What you want to achieve is nearly impossible. You can get some approximations by using Airdroid app (lets you see your phone on the web browser from your desktop pc) or installing vnc server on your device and vnc client on your desktop pc, or using Pushbullet app. This last is used for notifications rather than absolute control, but you could give it a ...

There are several gestures which aren't really supported on mobile devices including right clicking, hovering and most keyboard shortcuts. It is up to website developers to recognize this when designing their user interfaces and either build in alternative gestures or simply rely on universal input methods like clicking/tapping. Your best bet would be to ...

Android Mouse and Keyboard might be able to do what you want. Install it on one device, use it in bluetooth mode, and then sync that device's virtual bluetooth keyboard and mouse to the other device just as you would a real bluetooth keyboard or mouse.
