VMW Tools


I read about it somewhere, I think on one of the mailing lists, but I’m not sure…

Anyway, I’d like to mention some useful tools when running Haiku in vmware: Momoziro’s VMW Tools, see http://www.bebits.com/app/4296 .

By running vmw_server you can share the clipboard with your hosting OS. Very useful to get eg. a download URL into Haiku to use with wget.

There’s also vmw_mouse that makes mouse usage seamless between the VM-window and your hosting OS, but that feels funny, at least here on my notebook.

Wouldn’t it be a good idea to include these tools in the Haiku VMimage and maybe even put the clipboard thingy in the Bootscript?
I’d be happy to make contact with Momoziro to ask his permission.
