Running wayland client applications in Debian / Ubuntu with VMWare Player


In Ubuntu (using VMWare Player) i am trying to compile and run wayland client applications. Compilation is successful. But when running the application, "wl_display_connect" call itself is failing.
as per our analysis,
1. wayland-0 socket itself was not created.
2. Tried 'weston-launch' from virtual terminal. still i am facing the same issue.
3. tried creating wayland-0 socket using socat command. even that one not solved the issue.

please let me know where i can get complete information running a wayland client application in ubuntu / debian / fedora using VMWare Player.
