Debian VM (VMware Fusion Pro 12) very slow graphics

Postby lotus49 » 2020-11-11 14:00

I am running a fully updated 10.6 VM in VMware Fusion Pro 12 on a MacBook Pro 16" running Catalina.

I have a Windows 10 VM that runs at pretty much native speed but the graphics in Debian are dead slow. Even typing in a terminal the display is several letters behind my typing. Scrolling a web page is painfully slow. I have open-vm-tools and open-vm-desktop installed from the repos. The way the GUI responds is like it was in Windows before the drivers were installed.

Have I not installed the correct VMware Tools packages? If I have, what else might be wrong?
