    Re: VMware - Can't find Kernel Headers

    I had the same problem installing vmware tools on ubuntu 12.10.

    This didn't work for me:
    $ sudo apt-get install gcc build-essential kernel-headers-$(uname -r) dkms

    Instead, this did the job:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
