When I open VMWare player, I get a prompt to install VMWare Player tools. When I click on Download and Install, it shows this error:
Failed to run /usr/lib/vmware-installer/2.1.0/vmware-installer '--required' '--console' '--install-component=/home/dell/.cache/vmware/cds/cdstmp_tools-linux_10.2.5_9474260/vmware-tools-linux-10.2.5-8068393.x86_64.component' as user root.
Unable to copy the user's Xauthorization file.
I also have read that it is not recommended to launch GUI applications as
root or with
sudo. So is there any other option to install VMWare tools from Terminal/Bash?
