  • How are the vmware tools accessed from within the Kubuntu guest? I couldn't find them in any of the desktop menus or are they run from the command line?

  • how did you get the tools to install? I've been having all kinds of problems with my workstation and ubuntu 6.06 install.

  • Thanks for supplying this, but where is the vmware tools? Your blog and posting says tools is installed, but as with a previous post, it ain't there! One of the reasons I spent the time to download was the tools pre-installed. Without vmware tools, I could have installed it myself. Are they hidden, or forgotten? Let us know. Thanks.

  • I will provide the MD5 checksum for the next archives.

  • I've downloaded the zip file twice now, and both times I have been unable to extract it.

    I tried a couple different unzip programs, they all complained saying it "isn't a valid archive", or "no files to extract."

    Is the file corrupted? Am I doing something wrong?
