Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) In VMware Fusion
I decided to check out Ubuntu 10.10 RC today and I'm pleased to report that installation of the latest version in VMware Fusion (3.1.1) was trivial. I grabbed the install CD, told it to use "easy install" and away it went. Mouse ungrab, drag/drop file sharing, sound, et cetera were all available as soon as the GUI came up after the VMware tools install completed. HGFS was available as well under /mnt/hgfs. If you're running an older version of VMware you may need to upgrade or grab the latest tools1 to have such a smooth experience.
My version is 8.4.3 ↩
