LWE10215 : Howto change virtual terminals in a vmware virtual machine


The default "Ctrl-Alt-Fx" to get from GUI to a text terminal results in releasing your mouse from virtual machine ("Ctrl-Alt")


Disable mouse release with "Ctrl-Alt-Space" before or define different key sequence


With "Ctrl-Alt-Space" mouse release is disabled and you can press "Ctrl-Alt-F1" (resp. Fx) to change virtual Linux terminal.

If that´s not sufficient, the sequence to release the mouse cursor, this key sequence can be defined in your vmx file (for certain VM) or in your preferences.ini (for all VMs):

pref.hotkey.shift = "true"
pref.hotkey.control = "true"
pref.hotkey.alt = "true
This will change hotkeys from "Ctrl-Alt" to "Ctrl-Alt-Shift" (this will not change the hint in the Status Line of the player though!!!).
