I tried to set up a x64 18.04.2 xubuntu on a windows 10 pro host machine using the VM Player 7. Installing xubuntu works fine. The Vmtools however are not able to set up the shareable folders between the host and the guest machine. This is how I tried it:
VM Player > Manage > Install VMWare tools. After extraction I ran the sudo ./vmware-install.pl -d command in the folder's terminal. I put the Log messages down below. As the logs are very long I only put in the error messages.
I tried to sudo apt-get install gcc-8 as suggested in another thread on this topic. Is there anyone that can help me get this running? I also tried sudo apt-get install gcc. And yes I did sudo apt update as well. I'm very new to linux systems so don't hesitate pointing out the obvious.
Thank you guys very much.
The VMware Host-Guest Filesystem allows for shared folders between the host OS and the guest OS in a Fusion or Workstation virtual environment. Do you wish to enable this feature?
