Does anyone know if the host file control between the Windows 7 host and the linux mint guest using virtualization on the VMware workstation 9 works? I have compiled the vmhgfs module in the CLI for this linux guest for Vmware for its tools to work. I have VMware tools installed and can drag and drop files between the OSes, however I am not seeing the shared folders I listed through the options of that VMware in its shared folders option in the /mnt/hgfs/.
Also does the kernel version 3.5.0-17 generic support vmware tools and its modules for host file sharing between OSes? Some suggestions on the interwebs say it might not be supported, this link here suggests that. http://serverfault.com/questions/403467 ... 17-install
vmware-hgfsclient shows that the host file I want permission to is mounted, and lsmod | grep "wm." shows the module is loaded.
Any help on this would be great. I would love to have some sort of host file control within my linux mint box
