    Running Saucy in a Parallels VM

    Okay, so I've been trying to test Saucy in a Parallels9 VM. It installs fine, but the VM Tools won't install so the screen resolution and mouse won't work properly. Fusion6 works better in that the res/mouse are no problem. Does anyone know a way make this work? 13.04 has NO issues in either VM. I'd prefer Parallels over Fusion because it has better graphics performance. Anyone?

    Whenever I test, for the last 3 years, I either use Oracle Virtual Box or test on Real Hardware. I personally prefer Real Hardware.

    These are the hardware I use for testing: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/Hardware

    I haven't heard about what you have mentioned, sorry!

    I just tried to log into my Parallels Forum account only to find out I was "banned" for spam. Quite funny because the last post I did there was last October complaining about their lack of Linux support! They're supposedly going to un-ban me.

    However, it looks like it's a wasted venture because they dropped the Parallels Workstation for Linux version last March. It was PW6. You mentioned Parallels version NINE. Are you running the Mac product, or are you running a linux Host product (i.e.: PW)?

    I'm using the OSX version. I like Parallels because it has faster graphics and quicker UI response compared to VMWare. However, I've been Primarily using VMWare for it's dependability. VMWare supports DirectX 9 and Parallels supports DirectX 10, and the difference is quite obvious regarding UI response.
