issues in vmware with plasma-based operating systems

it seems like kde plasma is having weird glitches with running in vmware (kubuntu having weird ribbon glitches, opensuse leap shell crashes, etc.) is there something wrong with vmware that causes it to have issues with kde plasma 5? if so, is there an easy fix?

The easy fix is to switch to Virtualbox.

Are you running Plasma under Xorg or Wayland?

it's the default environment when installed with kde, the sddm screen says it's using plasma, and i can select between icewm session, plasma, twm, plasma (full wayland), and plasma (wayland)

Is there ane behaviour difference when using Plasma, Plasma (full wayland), and Plasma (wayland)?

I had this same experience a few years back with Plasma X11. I haven't run Linux in a virtual machine for the past year now, so I can't say what things are like right now, but VMWare Workstation had better OpenGL performance than VirtualBox (I vaguely remember LLVMpipe plaguing me back then).

the wayland versions seem to not crash kwin as much, but might be a bit glitchier in some ways. the cursor in full wayland is slightly drifted but enough to drive you crazy, and won't change.

assuming that normal plasma is running on xorg, xorg seems to crash more, but wayland seems to have some bugs.
