I installed VMware Workstation 7.1.5 on Kuuntu 12.04 (3.2.0-26). I have patched VMware.

The problem is that VMware does not show any window on start. I tried to see if there were any errors by starting up VMware on the command line and here is the output:

Here is the log:

I would be thankful to anyone who can solve this problem. Vmware Player that installed with this version is running just fine.

Try to run it from terminal with sudo. If window shows than you have rewrite permitions for files extracted from patch.

I ran it with sudo but the main window still does not show up. I have pasted the output here: paste.ubuntu.com/1101363 –  Saad Ali Jul 20 '12 at 6:05
