VMware Player / Workstation Mouse Grab Input Focus Bug

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

To fix the recent bug with VMware Player 2.5.3 and Workstation 6.5.3 Build 185404 under Karmic Koala Ubuntu just paste this line in your console before launching vmplayer/vmware:

export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK=yes

you may also modify the VMware starting script so you don’t have to export it every time.
