Hi Andrew,

This is a lInux device. The demonstrations showing how to install VMware Tools are based on Windows. Is it possible to install VMware Tools on a linux box?

Cheers

The installation of Tools in Linux vary by Linux distribution. What distribution?  Look in the VMware Knowledge base. For some distributions, I have had to install the C Compiler so that the Tools install would compile its modules correctly.

Hello Andrew,

I'm following your guide, however in my Linux machine I don't get the same screen. The only indication I get that VMware tools is being installed is by the statement 'End VMware Tools Install', see image
