I am running Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit, and using vmware player to run Windows 7 32 bit as guest with vmware tools installed.

I can't get the shared clipboard to run!

I found that I must also install vmware tools on the host (Ubuntu). How can I install vmware tools on Ubuntu 14.04 ?

I tried to download the deb package from vmware website but I didn't find a version for 14.04. When I browsed older versions of Ubuntu I found about thirty .deb packages. I don't know which I must download.

Any ideas?


download the VM workstation


chmod +x VMware-Workstation-Full-10.0.1-1379776.i386.bundle 
sh VMware-Workstation-Full-10.0.1-1379776.i386.bundle 

the continue the installation
