I am new to Ubuntu and I'm trying to mount the VMWare Shared Folder in my Ubuntu guest machine running on a Windows 8.1 host.
- I created shared folder with VMWare (VM > settings > option > share folder)
- Then I created a shared folder name
cshareand the host path is C:\
- Then I open the terminal in Ubuntu 12.04
- then I type
mount -t vmhgfs .host:/cshare /media/wshare
- Then I add this code to /etc/fstab for auto mount
.host:/cshare /media/wshare vmhgfs defaults 0 0
Everything is working fine but when I execute the commands I am getting this message:
You must have r/w access to the filesystem or be root
I also tried putting the following into
.host:/cshare /media/wshare cifs defaults,rw,user,auto,exec,utf8,ttl=5,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 .host:/cshare /media/wshare vmhgfs defaults,rw,user,auto,exec,utf8,ttl=5,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0
Any idea how to mount a VMWare shared folder in Ubuntu?
