I have followed these instructions:

sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
chmod +x ./Downloads/VMware-Player*.bundle
gksudo bash ./Downloads/VMware-Player*.bundle

I got this output:

Extracting VMware Installer...done. You must accept the VMware OVF Tool component for Linux End User License Agreement to continue. Press Enter to proceed.

Thats it - nothing else happened. So I then tried:

cd Downloads
sudo ./VMware-Player-*.bundle

and

sudo sh ./VMware-Player-*.bundle

and this was the output:

Extracting VMware Installer...done. You must accept the VMware OVF Tool component for Linux End User License Agreement to continue. Press Enter to proceed. VMWARE OPEN VIRTUALIZATION FORMAT TOOL LICENSE AGREEMENT

An endless scroll of text (I tried to get to end holding the return button for 5 mins) Can someone please help? (Really wish there was a deb package for this very popular software.)

You have to get to the end of that text (the agreement) in order to continue. However, don't hold down the Enter key, because I believe that only goes one line at a time. Instead, if you want to get to the end of the text faster, hold down the Space bar.

Disclaimer: I'm not telling you to not read the agreement, I'm only informing you on how to progress through the scrolling faster.

thanks - that worked as the return key seemed to 'loop' the txt –  jon May 15 '13 at 18:18

With one reputation I think the OP has a time limit before he can accept an answer. –  Étienne May 15 '13 at 19:07
