Suse (on vmware) terminal mouse cursor position misaligned


I noticed that there is a specific section for vmware, but it seemed to be more related to vmware installation & configuration than a specific application problem, so I thought I would post here.

I'm running a suse image on vmware, and for some reason, when in terminal, the mouse cursor (that select text cursor) position is a littlebit misaligned in vertical position. So when I try to select a line, it actually always seems to select text on the one line above it.
The alignment seems to be wrong for about half a row. I wonder where I could adjust for this misalignment ?

Edit: Actually it seems that also other windows face the same problem.. I wonder if this is some X-setting?

Ok, I noticed that there were 2 mouse modules being loaded, a VMware one, and some general one.
After modifying the X configuration, and removing the references to vmmouse module, everything works as it should.. Hope this helps some other poor VMware soul


mouse pointer, position, wrong-place
