Ubuntu on VMWare

While Ubuntu is easily installed as a VMWare guest, the installation of theVMWare tools is more complicated as one should think.

Ubuntu needs to be prepared by executing the following commands:

sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

After that the VMWare Tools can be installed, initiated by selecting the menu item in VMWare, followed by these steps:

cd /cdrom
cp VM*.gz /tmp
cd /tmp
tar xvzf VM[tab]
cd vm[tab]
sudo ./vmware-install.pl
