VMWare Tools Install Ubuntu


With your virtual machine running, in the VMware menu, VM > Install VMware Tools.

Open a terminal in the virtual machine and do the following

# mkdir /mnt/cdrom; mount /dev/cdrom  /mnt/cdrom
# cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-<version>.tar.gz /tmp/
# cd /tmp/
# tar zxpf VMwareTools-<version>.tar.gz 
# cd vmware-tools-distrib/
# ./vmware-install.pl 
Accept default settings if you are unsure.

This should work on most VM's.
