You do not mount the iso in the virtual machine - it runs in the the vmware prog. - clear as mud, I know; but google should help.
Okay so the previous information was for virtualplayer I got that part.
What ISO are you talking about downloading? Vmware tools???
The problem I'm having is trying to install vmware tools. I've search and found numerous instructions; case and point this tutorial http://install-climber.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/vmwaretoolslinuxmint12visual.html
but nothing is working and as far as the vmware patch that doesn't seem to be for vmware but instead for the following:
Patches are available for:
- ESX: Patch bundle for ESX Classic
- ESXi: Patch bundle for ESX Embedded and Installable
- VEM: Patch bundle for Cisco Nexus Virtual Ethernet Module for ESX/ESXi
- vCenter Server 5.x Patches
You say that you don't mount the iso in the virtual machine it runs in the vmware program. Well, when I've attempted to install vmware tools I see that it's showing up in LinuxMint KDE's in/on the cdrom. I've unzipped it to the desktop and then tried installing it using the various sudo commands for vmware but nothing works.
I'll keep trying but if I don't figure this out soon I'm going to give up.
