VMware won't install :( - adwaita and murrine are missing!

Post by drpeppercan » Mon Sep 17, 2018 8:54 pm

Hi all,

I am trying to install VMware.
Right after it printed "VMware Installer...done." it also printed some errors. I guess this explains why I don't see the actual application anywhere.

Code:

Code: Select all

(vmware-installer.py:4868): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "adwaita",
/usr/share/themes/Mint-Y/gtk-2.0/main.rc:1085: error: unexpected identifier `direction', expected character `}'

(vmware-installer.py:4868): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "murrine",
I already tried this code for the first error, without avail:

sudo apt install gnome-themes-standard

----------------------------------------------------------

For the 2nd error, I checked Synaptic, and found a package called:
"gtk-engines-murrine", version: 0.98.2-2ubuntu1 (latest version),
description: "cairo-based gtk+-2.0 theme engine"

Any ideas?

Thanks guys!

Can you be more specific? VMware what?

Of course, I should have mentioned it:
VMware Workstation 14.1.3 Player for Linux 64-bit.

I downloaded this file: VMware-VIX-1.17.0-6661328.x86_64.bundle

That's not the right file. You need this one: VMware-Player-14.1.3-9474260.x86_64.bundle
After you download it, run these commands (from a terminal):

Code: Select all

cd ~/Downloads (or wherever you normally download files)
sudo sh ./VMware-Player-14.1.3-9474260.x86_64.bundle --console

I can't believe it! I don't know why I downloaded that file too!
Now it's ok and installed!
Thank you ajgringo619 :)

Cheers!
