This question already has an answer here:

How can I install VMware in ubuntu 13.10, as Virtual box crashes the whole time or doesn't want to work 100%? I've tried the solution at this site, but I get errors in terminal when I try the commands. VMware can me used as the same as virtualbox, right? I want to install a different OS inside ubuntu using vmware. Please assist me in this.

It would be better if you could post the exact errors you encounter when you try to install VMware Player. – i08in Jun 21 '14 at 13:39

  1. Download the bundle from here to your Downloads folder: link
  2. Open up the terminal CTRL + ALT + T
  3. Enter the following commands:

    cd Downloads

    chmod +x VMware-Player-6.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle

    sudo ./VMware-Player-6.0.1-1379776.x86_64.bundle

  4. follow the install GUI.

VMWare is not packaged, but you can find detailed install instructions in the Community Wiki. I suggest you start by installing VMWare Player and go on from there. If you have particular issues installing please post the error messages.

I've looked and tried the commands you suggested on the link, but struggle to install the program, it looks installed if looked at terminal. but I still don't have the program en the tools needed, also described in the link,to get all working. What else can I do? I do have the bundle that I downloaded from vmware's website. There a way to install it? – Orosjopie Nov 6 '13 at 11:06
