Please note that the guide is for Daryna (Mint 4) but it still may be Ok to install
It is not under "System tools" as this category was discontinued in mintMenu
Open the menu and type vm and you should see it
If not it's very hard to tell what's wrong
If so do the following

Code: Select all

sudo updatedb

Code: Select all

locate -i vmware

you should find vmware and be able to figure otu which command to use to start it
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
