Installing VMWare in Ubuntu 7.10 was much simpler than I thought.
Open Terminal from the Applications – Accessories menu.
- Update the sources.list file. Enter password when prompted.
- Run an update.
- Now install VMWare.
- After the install, access the VMWare Server from the Applications – System Tools menu and select VMWare Server Console.
- Just select Localhost and Connect.
sudo vi /etc/apt/sources.list
Add this line with “gutsy partner” to the end of file:
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu gutsy partner
Save or :wq
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vmware-server
Wait for a little bit for installation to complete.
Please refer to the VMWare documentation how to use VMWare.
sudo apt-get remove --purge vmware-server sudo rm -r /etc/vmware
