I tried to create a shared folder to my Ubuntu 12.04.3 VM using VMware 5 from my Mac but I don't see the folder anywhere.

I've tried to use some commands as suggested here and here, but nothing is still showing... I just get the error:

Error: cannot canonicalize mount point: No such file or directory

So I make the folder I'm trying to mount to or just try to mount directly to my home folder and get this error now:

Error: cannot mount filesystem: No such device

Any help is appreciated.

  • Any comments, suggestions or help would be very much appreciated here, I like using the Shared drive feature in VMware... – Chef Pharaoh Oct 17 '13 at 18:03
  • Now I'm using VMWare 6, if that makes any difference. – Chef Pharaoh Mar 7 '14 at 15:56
