I'm trying to find a way to permanently hide the VMware menu bar when running in full screen mode. For earlier versions one could add pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = “TRUE” in the preferences file, but this doesn't seem to work in 5.0.2. As I'm using Ubuntu with the Unity interace it's a really annoying "feature" ...

  • Host OS: Win7 x64
  • VMware Player: 5.0.2
  • virtual OS: Ubuntu 13.04 x64

try "1" instead of "true"

pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = 1

Have you tried this yourself? Considering that all other values in the preferences file are string based booleans ... I just doubt that will work. – KG Christensen May 11 '13 at 8:29
