    /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/df34789dfgj/extensions/VMwareVMRC@vmware.com/plugins/lib

    Then edit the file:
    wrapper-gtk24.sh

    I added the following lines near the top:
    VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK='force'
    export VMWARE_USE_SHIPPED_GTK="force"

    So now the mouse appears to work correctly.

    However ctrl-alt-del does not work correctly.
    I was expecting ctrl-alt-ins to work instead:
    ctrl-alt-ins - no response from guest
    ctrl-alt-del - no response from guest
    ctrl-alt-. - (the . and del key on the numeric keypad) does work!
    (BUT of course this is a a laptop and only when I am docked to I have a numeric keypad, so I'll be unable to login to a guest most of the time).

    Okay can I call you GOD!?! That fixed the mouse issue perfectly. I have been fighting with this since i don't know how long. Thank so much for the fix!

    Some keys does not work on in the guest

    That also fixed the client keymapping issue in VMware Server 1.0.10 installs.

    I think the adding the changes the file under the .mozilla directory
    and the changes to the .vmx file fixed vmware server 2.0.2 and karmic..well at least on my laptop..

    1 machine down 1 to go..

    I'm just happy that it works
