Re: real quick linux VM question



He's talking about the tools menu in the vmware program itself, not the virtual machine. On my system the settings would actually be under the vm menu. With focus on vmware press alt m.

my linux sees it? wouldn't I have to have speech first
Just connect your display to the computer as normal.
In VMWare, you have an option
"Removable devices"
under the tools menu, I think.
Under that menu entry is your braille display. Have it disconnect from host and connect to guest. If it is USB, BRLTTY will see it and you will have braille. That has always worked reliably for me.
