I’m using VMware Fusion 11.5.6.
Host is Mac OSX 10.15.6 Catalina and guest is Ubuntu (sorry don’t know version number – how to check?)
I’m trying to install VMware Tools. Initially the “Install VMware Tools” option from Virtual Machine menu was greyed out. So I added a CD/DVD ROM device using linux.iso as the image. This ungreyed the “Install VMware Tools” option. When I boot the VM, a few things happen:
- Says virtual device sata:01 will start disconnected.
- Asks to install VMware tools: “Mount the virtual CD drive in the guest, uncompress the installer, and then execute vmware-install.pl to install VMware Tools.”
I click install and nothing happens.
