Summary: Gnome desktop under VMware Workstation can't export
windows using "Unity"
Product: openSUSE 11.1
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Priority: P5 - None
Found By: ---
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199)

I have an x86_64 system running openSUSE 11.1 and VMware Workstation 6.5.2
build-156735. I built a 32-bit openSUSE 11.1 guest image using SUSE Studio
beta. The guest has both Gnome and XFCE desktops and has open-vm-tools-gui
When I log in to an XFCE session, I can activate "Unity" mode on VMware
Workstation, which exports the windows on the guest to the host desktop. But
when I log in to a Gnome session, I get the following error message trying to
start the "Unity" mode:
The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:
- Unity is not supported on this guest operating system.
- The guest operating system's resolution cannot be changed.
I haven't tried KDE yet.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install openSUSE 11.1 and VMware Workstation 6.5.2 on the host.
2. Build an openSUSE 11.1 guest with open-vm-tools-gui, Gnome and XFCE
3. Power up the guest, open a window and try to enter "Unity" mode.
See error message above.
Opened up a window on the host.
