    According to this thread/howto: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=779934

    Vmware-server no longer needs a helper script for install. Just install it as per instructed on the Vmware website.

    VMware makes a launcher for you. I had one in my script at the very beginning but noticed it only created a duplicate launcher.

    Are you using Xubuntu or Kubuntu? I haven't tried it in those.

    As for your post above, I do agree that a 'success' message is in order, thank you! Didn't even think of that.

    Angry Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    Ok, so I'm new to the forum, and seeing as how out of all of your tutorials that I have tried, they all worked, I tried to install VMware server in hardy using one of your tutorials. However, I first searched it on google, and found this http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...on-ubuntu-8.04 and the installation was going fine, until I accidentally pressed something and the installation was a failure. Then, when I tried reinstalling, I got this message:
    Code:
    miguel@miguel-desktop:~$ sudo /home/miguel/Desktop/vmware-server-distrib/vmware-install.pl
    [sudo] password for miguel: 
    A previous installation of VMware software has been detected.
    
    Failure
    
    Execution aborted.
    So then, I tried your installation, but I got a similar error:
    Code:
    miguel@miguel-desktop:~$ chmod a+x ./install_vmware.sh && ./install_vmware.sh

    so I was really hoping that one of you would help me because I am a total noob at ubuntu, and have only had it for a day. I already downloaded the VMware-server-1.0.6-91891.tar.gz and acquired a serial. Please, any help will be appreciated.

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    This script is great. However, I'm unable to get the wireless adapter working with this specific installation. A few months ago, I used instructions here http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...31&postcount=5 to get everything in order (vmware 1.05). The link to the patch referenced, is dead now. Would anyone have a suggestion or tip to point me in the right direction?? Thanks.

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    Shadow94, have you tried a complete removal of VMware before trying again? That should get rid of errors where it is finding an installed version. And mighty adventurous of you to be installing virtualisation on your first day of Linux! Personally, I would have just played with a few apps on my first day so I don't end up hating Linux by the end of it, hehehe. Anyway, try uninstalling VMware then reinstalling it again. Can't remember if the script has an uninstaller, and I know it probably won't be listed in Synaptic, so if need be sudo apt-get remove vmware.

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    I found this thread when I needed to install Vmware server on my new install of hardy. However everything appeared to install correctly after running the script until I tried to launch vmware. The following lines are spammed before the backtrace which I could post should anyone find it useful.


    Unable to load image-loading module: /usr/l3232/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so: /usr/l3232/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory



    PROBLEM SOLVED


    Okay I've figured this out, in case anyone else runs into the problem using this script with the final version of hardy. The sed command that replaces lib32 or l32 with l3232 in libgtk2.0 loaders breaks vmware. You will need to run this sed to fix it.

    Code:
    sudo sed -i -e 's/usr\/l3232/usr\/l32/g' /usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loader-files.d/libgtk2.0-0.loaders

    Re: HOWTO: Install VMware Server in Hardy (and later)

    Hi i am posting this after doing hours of googling. My vmware install would keep saying vmware is installed, but it has not been (correctly) configured
    for this system. To (re-)configure it, invoke the following command:
    /usr/bin/vmware-config.pl.
    so i did a lil googling on it and found that vmware leaves a file called not_configured when u do not run the config. well aperently some how it doesn't get deleted so, if u get that error and have configured it simply remove or rename /etc/vmware/not_configured and all should work.

    Success!
    I'm on Hardyx64 and had no issues with the script.
    Thanks a lot.
