Hi,

I installed vmware tools on solaris but strangely enough I don't see them in menu bar + I have mouse AND hand not running in sync.
Is that normal? Please advise.

You will not see them in the menu bar, unless the cmdlet is running, and all it does is sync time with host!

That's is completely normal.

However mouse Input which is performed by the mouse driver, is not working, try

1. Shutdown and restart Solairs OS.
2. Re-install VMware Tools.
