I've just installed VMWare Workstation 9 on a headless Ubuntu 12.04 server. How can I run the Virtual Network Editor from the command line? When attempting to run it via the vmware program over X (Edit > Virtual Network Editor), nothing happens - thus I am looking for how to start it stand-alone.

What is the command to run it alone?
