After installing VMware Tools without a problem, when I run the vmware-config-tools.pl script there is an error when trying to build/load the vmhgfs driver. The gcc, binutils and make modules are installed. (See error messages below.)
Since the driver is not loaded, the Shared Folders option does not work. Any ideas how to solve this problem?
(There are no problems when running Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 in the same setup of Vmplayer 5.02 with Vmware Tools 9.2.3.)
Windows 7 host, Ubuntu 13.04 32 bit Guest - Daily build: 16 April 2013, VMware Tools 9.2.3

The filesystem driver (vmhgfs module) is used only for the shared folder
feature. The rest of the software provided by VMware Tools is designed to work
independently of this feature.
If you wish to have the shared folders feature, you can install the driver by
running vmware-config-tools.pl again after making sure that gcc, binutils, make
and the kernel sources for your running kernel are installed on your machine.
These packages are available on your distribution's installation CD.
