sudo sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.8.0-8518891.x64.bundle
Extracting VMware Installer...done.
/tmp/vmis.bxQxOU/install/vmware-installer/vmware-installer: line 76: python: command not found

Edit: I followed these steps but still get the original error message;

sudo apt update
sudo apt install python2.7

cd ~/Downloads
sudo sh ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.8.0-8518891.x64.bundle

Same Result:

Extracting VMware Installer...done.
/tmp/vmis.bxQxOU/install/vmware-installer/vmware-installer: line 76: python: command not found

tried 4.7.0 version; same thing.

    check if your python is pointing to the correct python2.7 version of python by ls -l /usr/bin/python؛ if it was not then link to it with ln -s /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/bin/python May 27, 2019 at 16:12

Python 2.7 is not installed by default on Ubuntu 18.04 so you need to install it, but typing the wrong command to execute a .bundle file is what caused the python: command not found error.

sudo apt update  
sudo apt install python2.7 
cd ~/Downloads  
sudo ./VMware-Horizon-Client-4.8.0-8518891.x64.bundle  

If you get a permissions error from the last command, right-click the VMware-Horizon-Client-4.8.0-8518891.x64.bundle file, select Properties -> Permissions tab -> Allow executing file as program.

Try the below from their documentation:

a python2 environment on Ubuntu 16.04 x64 distributions, run:

sudo apt-get install python-gtk2

to install the gtk2 library.
