After upgrading to 13.04 I am unable to start VMWorkstation. I get the following message:
Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.
Kernel Headers 3.8.0-19-generic
Kernel headers for version 3.8.0-19-generic were not found. If you have installed them in a non-default path you can specify the path below.
Does anyone have any idea what to do next?
Ubuntu 13.04 64bit
If I direct the path to:
I get the following message:
C header files matching your running kernel were not found.
As suggested I run this in terminal:
cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include/linux sudo ln -s ../generated/utsrelease.h sudo ln -s ../generated/autoconf.h sudo ln -s ../generated/uapi/linux/version.h
However, now I get the following:
Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the kernel CANCEL / INSTALL
I INSTALL, the window closes and nothing happens.... Any ideas?
I installed this:
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-tools-dev open-vm-dkms open-vm-toolbox open-vm-tools-dev
And it all launched...
Many thanks for the suggestions and help... This is what I love about Ubuntu... it has a great helpful community... !
