VMWare Workstation install / Debian based Linux

posted Mar 6, 2018, 7:08 AM by Andrew Chadick

1.  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

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

3.  cd ~/Downloads

4.  chmod +x VMware-Workstation-Full*.bundle

5.  sudo ./VMware-Workstation-Full*.bundle

Follow the graphical prompts from there.

Note: I prefer to set up the Workstation, get it going, then in Preferences, set it to continue running after closing Workstation.  Close Workstation, then use Remmina Remote Desktop Client, and term serv in to the desktop.  I find that it is much more responsive.
