Ubuntu running on vmware-kvm with Dual Screens


I’m trying to find a way to use Ubuntu 64-bit on vmware-kvm.exe with dual screens. Ubuntu runs perfectly fine but I can’t use my two monitors unless I use VMware workstation player. I’ve been searching online for so long but I still can’t find a solution.

I found someone who asked the same question on the official vmware website in 2014 but an admin answered “vmware-kvm currently does not support VMs using multiple monitors. It’s certainly something that we can consider[…]”.

And a post on r/vmware with only one comment saying it’s impossible unless you use VMware workstation.

Also, there’s no option for dual monitors when I run –preferences.

So now that I have accepted the fact that VMware-kvm doesn’t support multiple monitors. (According to what an admin said in 2014) I’m trying to find another solution. I don’t know if the solution is to modify my current setup or if I should just use something else instead of vmware-kvm. I would like to have true full screen (without the top bar appearing when I let my mouse at the top of the screen for too long) and I would like to be able to switch between my host (windows) and my virtual machine (Ubuntu) with a key. I have already found that by editing

%APPDATA%VMwarepreferences.ini

and adding

pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = "TRUE"

The top bar disappear but exiting isn’t as simple as pressing a single key, you need to do ctrl+alt and then ctrl+alt+enter. You also doesn’t get the performance of kvm.
Thank you for your help!
