In Topic: Mouse Issues in VMWare with Lion

10 November 2011 - 10:04 PM

Sorry, I'm a newbie to the mac virtual machine world, use the IOHIDFamily.kext from 10.7 does work, I just don't know how to install it. Once it's installed it works perfectly

Here is a video explain what to do for any other newbie who don't know what to do. Apparently it's not as simple as copy and paste :(

I have the same issue, mouse focus lags behind actual mouse movement, using IOHIDFamily.kext from 10.7 didn't help.

I found connect the USB mouse directly to the guest OS makes user experience a bit better, still mouse movement is a little weird not a perfect solution

In Topic: Help Copy and Paste VMWare Workstation 8

09 November 2011 - 10:58 AM

I fixed it, it's the wackiest fix you can imagine

go to VMWare workstation click on Edit -> Preference -> Input

uncheck Ungrab when cursor leaves window (need ctrl + alt + delete, task manager to get out of Lion)
go back and recheck Ungrab when cursor leaves window, set optimize mouse for game to always, click ok

then go back in and undo the change:
Edit -> Preference -> Input
check Grab keyboard and mouse input on key press
uncheck keyboard and mouse input on key press
set optimize mouse for game to automatic

Don't know why but it worked copy and paste in and out of vm works fine now.

Also i found when using xcode, mouse is a bit jerky, set the optimize mouse for game to true seen to fix it

In Topic: Performance of Lion on VMware workstation 8

try this
while lion is running in vmware workstation go to view -> customize click on Thumbnail Bar
to turn on thumbnail bar
then view -> customize click on Thumbnail Bar to switch it off

It doesn't make any sense why it'll speed up but I tested it, does have slight improvement

Also install the VMWare Tool it can be found in the vmware workstation 8, fusion 4 unlocker, run the darwin.iso in lion
