    Start as Root?

    I've just installed VMWare Player 5.02 on ubuntu 12.04.

    I want to start VM as root so I can successfully install VMWare Tools.

    How do I start it as root please?

    @monkeybrain2012, there's a typo in your reply. It should be:
    Code:
    gksudo vmware
    @R@inm@n, more information is available here.
