There’s a bug in mouse behavior that happened to me in VMWare Workstation under Windows 8.1 host with Ubuntu 14.04 as client. When hovering mouse over something and/or selecting something by dragging, the mouse moved it’s position by some offset. See the GIF below.
How to fix it?
- Locate VMWare Workstation, right click and open Properties.
- Under Compatibility check Disable display scaling on high DPI settings.
- Restart VMWare Workstation.
The mouse should now behave normally.
