Vdagent not working on a Debian guest

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



I'm trying a virtual machine with a live CD distribution called AntiX Linux, which is directly based on Debian.

I'm using direct QEMU commands.
In the VM configuration I have this for SPICE configuration:
"-vga qxl -device virtio-serial-pci -spice unix=on,addr=path/to/vm_spice.socket,disable-ticketing=on -chardev spicevmc,id=spicechannel0,name=vdagent -device virtserialport,chardev=spicechannel0,name=com.redhat.spice.0 \"
Then I boot the live ISO, double check that QXL driver is installed -which normally always is-, and install spice-vdagent package (version 20 here). I'm using remote-viewer (virt-viewer) to visualize the VM.

Up to this point, clipboard sharing with host still doesn't work, and trying to drag a file from host to guest results in an error "The agent is not connected".

So I manually run "spice-vdagent" command, and clipboard sharing now works, but trying to drag file from host to guest gives "File transfer is disabled". Also, automatic resolution change with window resizing doesn't work either.

Certainly, this live distro doesn't come with any spice-related packages installed by default, except for the QXL package.

Am I missing something here? Could someone help please?
Thanks beforehand.
