Fedora installed on Vmware not reposive to mouse click


Hi, All

I have installed Fedora on Vmware. The host operating sys is windows xp.
The fedora boots all right, but when I click on the incons in its xwindow, nothing happens. Could anyone tell me why and what I can do get the xwindow work please?

Thanks

you don't have to waste your time with installing Fedora on VMWare.

You can use images available for free in the Internet.
Most of them have VMware tools configured.

I described some example images on my page:

this is for (k)ubuntu images:

...and here Fedora:
