Accessing Ubuntu running on Hyper-V over Remote Desktop

This is a note to self (and anyone else who tries to access a virtual Ubuntu guest on Hyper-V from a RDP-session).

Mouse capture does not work in Hyper-V when accessing it from a RDP-session unless you have installed the integration services in the guest OS.
(MS does not provide integration services for Ubuntu…)

In order to work effeciently without the mouse, these two guides will come in handy:

  1. Controlling Hyper-V VMs in Virtual Machine Connection over TS/Remote Desktop without a mouse
  2. Keyboard Shortcuts in Ubuntu
