Solve mouse stuck issue linux VM guest

[Environment]

Opensuse 11.3 as Linux VM guest operating system
vmware server 2.02 as vmhost in window7 x64bit
vmware player 3.12 as vmhost in window7 x86

[Problem]

The left mouse buttons “stacks” in a “pressed” state when I keep it
pressed for more that a moment! So, when I move a window for example,
when I physically release the button, the X does not release it! It
“thinks” that I keep press it.

The mouse left button is locked but I can unlock it with a single right
click or escape with keyboard.

The mouse click and drag . . . gets stuck in stuck state . . .
The mouse click was going dead from time to time as well.

[Solution/Workarround]

** Edit as root user the /lib/udev/rules.d/69-xorg-vmmouse.rules file. **

/*From*/

ACTION==”add|change”, ENV==”?*”, ATTRS==”i8042 AUX port”,
PROGRAM=”/usr/bin/vmmouse_detect”, ENV{ID_INPUT.tags}=”vmmouse”

/*To*/

ACTION==”add|change”, ENV==”?”, ATTRS==”i8042 AUX port”,
KERNEL==”event[0-9]”, PROGRAM=”/usr/bin/vmmouse_detect”,
ENV{ID_INPUT.tags}=”vmmouse”

/*Or From*/

ACTION==”add|change”, ENV{ID_INPUT_MOUSE}==”?*”, ATTRS==”i8042 AUX port”,
PROGRAM=”/usr/bin/vmmouse_detect”, ENV{ID_INPUT.tags}=”vmmouse”

/*To*/

ACTION==”add|change”, ENV{ID_INPUT_MOUSE}==”?”, ATTRS==”i8042 AUX port”,
KERNEL==”event[0-9]”, PROGRAM=”/usr/bin/vmmouse_detect”, ENV{ID_INPUT.tags}=”vmmouse”

[Note]
Keep in mind that the * charator in both case in ENV parts should be delete, and add KERNEL==”even[0-9]” part in the rule.
