    Customizing vmplayer


    I have just started to play with vmplayer and I really think it's great. One thing I find annoying thought is that I always have to press Ctrl+G to activate the input to the vm. Is it possible to change this functionality (without too much hassle) so that the input is grabbed automatically when I change to the vmplayer window?

    Doesn't it start grabbing input when you click on the window?

    Yes it does, but I want to access the input without using the mouse. For example: if I use Alt-Tab to focus the vmplayer window I want the input to be grabbed directly.

    I might be asking for a bit too much, but it sure would be nice if it was possible to change this. Are key-combinations/signals usually hard coded into the program?
