If your mouse pointer is not in sync with where you tap, you can use "Simulated Touchpad" input mode, or better, you can add an "EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet" to your virtual machine (when it's powered off) and then power it on. To add the Tablet:
- If configuring through virt-manager, Go to the View->Details section, and select Add Hardware->Input->EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet.
- If running your virtual machine on the command-line, you need an option similar to: "-device usb-tablet,id=input0"

Running this on a Chromebook. 1) Developer reached out to me and fixed the color problem. So it's good now. 2) It is not optimized for Chromebook use, ie with Keyboard & Mouse. Otherwise it has great potential. For problems, developer asked me to join a Google group to test it out. Hope it would be fixed. I revised my rating back to 2 as it constantly crashes on me now and does not resolve unless I delete app data and start-over.

Connects but won't send ctrl alt del so I can't do anything with the app apart from move the cursor around the login screen. Not even going to try the pro version if the free don't work.

Sound not working right on x86-32. It plays a few seconds and then silences. Ac97 works slightly better with aSPICE version 3.7.9 while with HD Audio it is nothing but choppy dings and silence when playing videos.
