I hope I haven't just missed it if this was asked before. I did some searching but there's so many posts and I didn't see anything close enough to what my problem is.
I need to install vmware workstation 8 (for linux of course) from the command line. Problem is, the software is on a dvd disk and all I've ever had to use is "sudo apt-get install..." or manually from a tar.gz. Can someone guide me how to do this?
Oh, in case you're wondering, my host is Ubuntu 12.04 server. It's a light weight install that really only has the command line, awesome window manager, and xdm. I'm trying to avoid installing gnome or any dm like that so I can stay light weight with it.
Also, here's some more information about the package I need to install. It's in a zip file to begin with. If I extract that, here's some info I get from the file's properties in nautilus (from my other computer that has nautilus).
Name: VMware-Workstation-Full-8.0.4-744019.x86_64.bundle Type: shell script (application/x-shellscript)
