Comment 51 for bug 248521


I can confirm that the 1ubuntu5 version improved things. Previously all clicks where registered at the lower right corner of the screen, now it seems movement of the mouse is registered by the system.
However the coordinates are still off, so I still have to use the normal mouse driver.

When I move the mouse INTO the VMWare window, the shown mouse pointer and the coordinates registered by the guest system are quite close at first. The more I move the pointer into the window, the more the coordinates drift.

Example: I can click the Applications menu, when I move the pointer in from the upper left corner, however when I move the pointer down the menu, the lowest menu entry will highlight while the pointer is actually just about at the middle of the menu.

This is with Kernel 2.6.27-7-generic and VMWare Workstation 6.5 with latest VMWare Tools (from VMWare) installed. The problem occurs with and without /usr/bin/vmware-user started.
