Installing Vmware tools on a linux box is a straightforward affair from the terminal.

Installation Procedure

The first step is obviously mount the ISO to install VMware tools. Just a right click on the guest and then guest, install/upgrade VMware tools.

Now the commands needed on the Ubuntu box are as follows. Note all need to be run as root or sudo.

#mkdir /mnt/cdrom

#mount /dev/cdrom or /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom

#tar xzvf /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-x.x.x-xxxx.tar.gz -C /tmp/

#cd /tmp/vmware-tools-distrib/

#./vmware-install.pl -d

#reboot

Bosh. Job done.
