Vmware doesn't start properly with ubuntu 16.04

after the upgrade from ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04, my vmware workstation 10 was no longer working. I found some issues with the new kernel and tried to fix them. Now, after some fixes, it starts only using the following script:

exec /usr/lib/vmware/bin/ /usr/lib/vmware/lib /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware /usr/lib/vmware/libconf

One issue is still open: the following message sent by GTK:
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "unity-gtk-module": /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ undefined symbol: g_action_group_action_added

(vmware-unity-helper:14615): Gtk-WARNING **: Impossible to find the theme engine in module_path: «murrine»,
The murrine theme has been installed with the command:
sudo apt-get install murrine-themes
I have installed also the GTK2-murrine-theme

Is there anybody having some ideas about how to solve this issue?
