I'm a new user setting up ubuntu on a virtual pc using VMWare Workstation. At this stage I want to install VMWare Tools. I have taken a few steps, however i do not know how to procceed [see image].
Steps I have taken so far.
- Installing Ubuntu 14.04
- unpacking the tar.gz file containing the vmware tools to desktopm
typing the three commands
cd Desktop cd vmware-tools-distrib sudo ./vmware-install.pl [en-dash]d
I get asked to give sudo password. next on my screen is this message
VMWare Tools 10.1.6 build-5214329 for Linux installer Usage: ./vmware-install.pl [[-][-]d[efault]] default: Automatically answer questions with the proposed answer. [[-][-]f[orce-install]] force-install: install even if open-vm-tools packages are available for this distribution. [[-][-]prefix=<path to install product: bin, lib, doc>] Put the installation at <path> instead of the default location. This implies '--default'. [[-][-]r[egenerate-cert]] Force to regenerate server key/cert files if they already exist. --clober -kernel-modules=<module1,module2,... Forcefully removes any VMware related modules installed by any other installer and installs the modules provided by this installer. This is a comma separated list of modules.
Now what to do next?
