    vmware tools Ubuntu 10.10 header files not found

    Hi.

    When installing VMware Tools (VMware Workstation 6.5) on Ubuntu 10.10, I got the config error that the C header files matching the running kernel were not found.

    Default location didn't exist:
    /usr/src/linux/include

    How can I resolve this?

    Thanks,

    Open up a terminal and run the following command

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
