    Mouse can't work on Ubuntu Server (minmal virtual machine mode) in VBox VM.
    I ran:
    sudo aptitude install xserver-xorg-core
    sudo aptitude install xinit
    sudo aptitude install jwm
    Apparently I can access the simple graphical desktop but with problems. Mouse won't move.
    Output from tty; can't roll up, it has stopped at this point:
    loading extension GLX
    The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
    Warning: Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but has 2 symbols
    Ignoring extra symbols
    Erros from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server
    Thanks for your time
