vmmouse - VMware Mouse input driver
vmmouse is an XFree86 input driver for mice. The driver supports most available mouse types and interfaces. USB mice are only supported
on some OSs, and the level of support for PS/2 mice depends on the OS.
The vmmouse driver functions as a pointer input device, and may be used as the X server's core pointer. Multiple mice are supported by
multiple instances of this driver.
Please refer to xorg.conf(5) for general configuration details and for options that can be used with all input drivers. This section only
covers configuration details specific to this driver.
The driver will automatically detect if the vmmouse device is present and if it is not, it will load the regular mouse driver and attempt
to fall back to it. There are no vmmouse specific options, but if you set mouse(4) options, they will be passed on.
See the mouse(4) man page for details on these options.

The console's window size in VMware is too small. How can I change it?
I mean changing the window size of pseudo terminals such as tty1, not the kde desktop.
I think it may be connected to resolution.But changing resolution in the menu.lst of grub doesn't work.
Thanks. (4 Replies)
