I’ve read all over the place that the latest version of VMWare supports Ubuntu directly, but it still doesn’t seem to work. I still get the error message that there is not a compiled version of the tools suitable for my system. Here’s the steps I took to allow the tools to compile:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
That was pretty much it. Once I had run those two commands, I was able to install the VMWare tools without a hitch.
