@AlexanderRechsteiner Thanks for spotting that I had missed the file system seperator / in the host share!

comment How do I mount shared folders in Ubuntu using VMware tools?
Thanks @AlexanderRechsteiner. Your syntax is probably better as it is more general. FYI, backticks around commands expand the command so since vmware-hgfsclient returns the "share name", then `vmware-hgfsclient`, uses the returned "share name" as the argument for vmware-hgfsmounter. if you're getting "share name is invalid" try running vmware-hgfsclient and seeing what "share name" it returns. It may be a list, and that might be the problem.

comment apportcheckresume recurring error and gnome shell fixations
Does anyone know how to get a stacktrace of this? I think the obvious answer is to try to add import pdb;pdb.set_trace into /usr/share/apport/apportcheckresume and then put the machine into suspend and possibly out?

Please post your solution if/when you find one. Not sure if our issues are related, but if I work it out, I will post it here too. :)
