I just now installed Ubuntu 12.10 on a Dell Studio laptop. I then tried to install VMware player on it. I went into the terminal and typed
sudo apt-get install file:///home/nbiser/VMware-Player-5.0.1-894247.x86_64%20(1).bundle
When I do this it tells me that
syntax error near unexpected toekn`('
I have tried editing out the parentheses, but it doesn't help. Occasionally it will get past that error, but instead it tells me that it couldn't locate the package file.
I have also tried doing this with a i386 bundle. but it still tells me that it couldn't find the package file.
I have done this install on other Ubuntu computers and it has never done this to me before. Any ideas?
