I just installed ubuntu 12.04 via VMWare on MacOs 10.7.4. I assigned a shared folder and gave ubuntu the right to read/write it.But now I can't find this folder in ubuntu. I know in win7 I can find it on desktop. Can you guys tell me what to do? Also the vmware tools were installed. Thanks.

There is another article that helped me with this problem: How do I mount shared folders (win7 host) in Ubuntu (guest) using VMware(tools v6).

The article is meant for win7 but the solution also worked for my mac.
