Having trouble with vmware-console & your keyboard mouse

January 22nd, 2010 by

If you are like me, looking around for a fix to get your keyboard & mouse working like before the 11.2 release with your vmware console. Try this fix :

Uncomment the line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
option “AutoAddDevices” “off”

I’ve tried this in xfce & kde4 desktop, and now don’t have any strange grabbing off keyboard & mouse.
I can now easily send the ctrl+alt+del evil sequence to some windows vms.

If it works for you, please send a reply to these bugs :

Many ubuntu 9.10 guys are also hit by this problem !
