I am running Ubuntu 15.10 in VMware Workstation 12 Player on Windows 7. Since VMware has stopped updating VMware Tools or something, I have to use open-vm-tools. Unfortunately, it doesn't resize the display. My installation is something of a mess because I've been toying around with the GitHub release, had some problems removing VMware Tools resulting in a partial install, and installed from source code meaning I can't likewise uninstall.
How can I get open-vm-tools to work and properly resize the display?
