Installing vmware tools on Debian wheezy 7 !
#i have installed Debian wheezy CD1. And i don’t see gcc and make tools already installed . So gonna install:
apt-get install gcc make
#We also need to install the kernel header:
apt-cache search linux-header
#now installing linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64
apt-get install linux-headers-3.2.0-4-amd64
To be safety just run: apt-get update && apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
We are ready to go!
Now we right click on Debian system of vmware workstation(Left side) and click on “Install Vmware Tools”:
Note: I already installed the tools, so here you are seeing “Reinstall Vmware Tools” whereas it should be “Install Vmware Tools” .
It will pop-up to open in CD-ROM to mount it. Now just open the the location and copy to other location such as :
cd /media/vmware-tools; mkdir /home/scientific/vmtools
cp * /home/scientific/vmtools;tar xvf *
#time to install:
Now wait until and press Enter when it asks . When installation finished just reboot:
Hope it is helpful to someone !
