I just installed ubuntu 12.04 via VMWare on MacOs 10.7.4. I assigned a shared folder and gave ubuntu the right to read/write it.But now I can't find this folder in ubuntu. I know in win7 I can find it on desktop. Can you guys tell me what to do? Also the vmware tools were installed. Thanks.
There is another askubuntu.com article that helped me with this problem: How do I mount shared folders in Ubuntu using VMware tools?.
The article is meant for win7 but the solution also worked for my mac.
