***.. 3 ratings

VMware add-ons are a set of tools to enhance interaction between Haiku, running in a virtual machine, and the host operating system. It is like the official VMware tools on Windows or Linux.

It currently provides:
* Clipboard sharing between Haiku and the host OS. Use the VMware add-ons desktop applet to enable or disable the sharing.
* Mouse sharing: the mouse can seamlessly enter and leave the VM window.
* Disk compacting: starts the VMware "shrink" process, which reduces the size of "auto-expanding" virtual disks attached to the virtual machine. The free space on disks is cleaned up previously, in order to get better results.
* Graphics driver for VMware: you can choose your preferred resolution using the Screen preflet in Haiku.
* Graphics driver for VirtualBox: change the graphics controller in the VM settings to VMSVGA, and set the video memory size to 64 MB to be able to use higher resolutions.
* Shared folders: folders from the host OS can be mounted in Haiku: mount -t vmwfs ~/Shared
