Searching for the best virtualization tool, I of course tried VMWare Fusion and it seems to fit my needs better than it's 2 competitors.
But I am facing one problem with Unity.
First of all :
- Host is MacOsX 10.10.2 Yosemite on a MacPro 2 X 2.93Ghz, 40GB or RAM and Radeon HD 5870 and some storage in it (10TB HDD + 1.5TB SSD).
- Guest is Linux Mint with the Mate Desktop (don't like Cinnamon and I find KDE so non ergonomic !) which is in fact nothing more than Ubuntu with a desktop that suits my needs and tastes better...
I really like the ability to use "Unity" (where the competitor's function doesn't allow it) because I think it's an elegant way to circumvent Dual-Booting 🙂
But I face one problem when I am under Unity...
It works... not a problem. But of course, a window opened from the guest OS can be partially hidden by a Host OS window. Sadly, when I click the Linux (guest OS) window, it does not come to the forefront. I have to move (or close) the Mac window to get access to the Linux window.
Is this a known limitation of Unity or a known bug ?
Is there a workaround ?
Thanks for your answers.
Thx for using Fusion!
This is a known issue, and I'm afraid there's no available workaround.
Will let you know if there's any update.
Thx a lot for your effort on this & Nice working day.
