IIRC vmware-tools is not quite in line with Xorg and refused to work
without finding /etc/XF86Config.  Finally got it to work for both gpm
and X by having both that and /etc/X11/xorg.conf, and for good measure
doing "ln -fs /dev/input/mice /dev/mouse".

On my VMware system with a Logitech mouse...

FULLNAME="Generic - 3 Button Mouse (PS/2)"

# Additional options for gpm (e.g. acceleration), device

Seems to me I found a more elegant solution on another system but I'm
not there.

Make sure you have VMware 4.5.2 build-8848, or later if available.

May also want to get and install
or later.
