Karmic Koala (Ubuntu 9.10) on Workstation 7

Ubuntu 

Although, the generally available release is not officially supported…. it appears to be running reasonably well!!!!  Easy Install recognized the .iso and VMware Tools were installed seamlessly.  I saw two CD/DVD drives show up in VM Settings immediately after installation, but it was corrected after a reboot, and "fit to guest" isn't automatically applying… but otherwise it is very usable…

We would really appreciate it if you would please post any issues you find in the Workstation forums.

    There is one issue which was reported in forums two versions ago, but unfortunately it wasnt fixed yet – USB HID devices (keyboards and mouses) cannot be autoconnected (all other devices autoconnect fine).
    They can be connected manually, but you have to be quick, otherwise it will tell you that “last HID device cannot be connected to virtual machine”.
    It is incovenient and I guess that it would be easy to fix:( Can you please forward this as proper bug report? Thank you!
