VMware Tools for Linux Guests
Power on the virtual machine.
After the guest operating system has started, prepare your virtual machine to install VMware Tools.
Choose File > Install VMware Tools.
The remaining steps take place inside the virtual machine.
Be sure the guest operating system is running in text mode. You cannot install VMware Tools while X is running.
As root (su -), mount the VMware Tools virtual CD-ROM image, change to a working directory (for example, /tmp), uncompress the installer, then unmount the CD-ROM image.
Note: You do not use an actual CD-ROM to install VMware Tools, nor do you need to download the CD-ROM image or burn a physical CD-ROM of this image file. The VMware Workstation software contains an ISO image that looks like a CD-ROM to your guest operating system. This image contains all the files needed to install VMware Tools in your guest operating system.
Note: Some Linux distributions use different device names or organize the /dev directory differently. If your CD-ROM drive is not /dev/cdrom, modify the following commands to reflect the conventions used by your distribution.
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt
tar zxf /mnt/vmware-linux-tools.tar.gz
Run the VMware Tools installer.
Log out of the root account.
Start X and your graphical environment.
In an X terminal, launch the VMware Tools background application.
