No 3D-acceleration with VMware Workstation 9

Postby Hoeze on Wed Oct 02, 2013 8:13 pm

Hi,
today I created a VM with LMDE 201303, activated 3D-acceleration and installed Kernel 3.11.2 and (after "apt-get dist-upgrade") the "open-vm-tools"-package without problems on it.
Nevertheless Cinnamon tells me that 3D-acceleration is not enabled and I have to use software rendering.
I don't really have a clue why it shouldn't work, because I don't get an error (except "No supported graphics card found")...
Does anyone have an idea how to get 3D-acceleration working?
