Vmware - clipboard and shared folders


Just thought I should share this with anyone else having trouble with vmware guest installation. Since I am not a pro in Linux I wasted several hours figuring it out...


1. apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-tools-desktop

- For clipboard synchronization:

add "vmware-user-suid-wrapper" to ~/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands


- For shared folders (change permissions and root path as you like)

mkdir /mnt/hgfs

chmod 777 /mnt/hgfs

add "vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs" to ~/.e/e/applications/startup/startupcommands


I didn't find a way to mount it automatically at system startup and instead inserted it into user script

I am running Bodhi 4.4.0 Legacy in vmware player 12 on win7 x64
