    If you want the default, then don't type anything, just [Enter].

    I believe you have to completely remove the old installation before you can re-install.

    Try this:

    Code:
    sudo /usr/bin/vmware-uninstall.pl
    Then reinstall using all the defaults.

    Okay, things are not as we would expect.

    Do this: Open Synaptic, then do a Search for vmware. When you find anything that has vmware in it click Mark for Complete Removal. Then Apply, Apply.

    Then click on Status bar, and see if there is anything there that needs to be delected, things not being used.
