comment How to assign “back” and “forward” actions to Logitech Anywhere Mouse MX' horizontal scroll wheel?
Just tried the vmx file hack - and it doesn't seem to work. What I see is that when I do a restart, VMware erases the line I just added, as if it has a default file template that is being reset every time you start the machine.

Thanks. I will test the vmx line next time I restart the system (doesn't happen too often).

OK, this was apparently the problem. Now the clock is being updated as soon as the network connection is established. Thanks.

I tried changing rc.local accordingly, but then the clock won't update at all, even not from command line.

Isn't ntpdate being phased out or something? Also, If I understand this correctly, the service runs and maintains the sync of the local clock to the server's clock - so the drift is bound. If you remove ntp and run ntpdate once, won't it be affected by clock drifting when the machine is on for extended periods?

Thanks. Still showing 1970 after this command (w/ sudo). Reading ntpd manpage, I am not sure how this forces an update?
