  5. [SOLVED] Re: How to run/execute a desktop file in terminal mode ?

    .desktop files aren't executable from a shell directly. The program on the Exec= line is. Use that.

  12. Re: Running VMWare workstation player on top of workstation player

    If the guestOS is 64-bit, you'll want to use KVM+QEMU so the hardware accel features are available. Straight qemu is seldom used by anyone, unless they need to support CPUs like MIPS.

    The only other thing I could guess is that it really isn't a 64-bit Ubuntu installed? uname -m should show the architecture.
