I just downloaded the .bundle from the vmware site file for my Ubuntu 8.10 . So what to do next? I’m used to “apt-get install”. But this is a .bundle file, so no apt-get for this application. Well the answer was really simple just run the bundle file:
- sudo sh VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-118166.i386.bundle
- sudo sh VMware-Player-2.5.1-126130.i386.bundle
For newbies, save the .bundle file from the vmware site onto your ubuntu desktop. Start terminal by going to the menu APPLICATIONS>ACCESSORIES> TERMINAL
then navigate to the desktop by typing dir, enter (you will see a list of items one of them is Desktop (note the capital D). So you type cd Desktop and press enter. You must write Desktop with capital D because linux unlike windows takes into consideration case of the names of files and folders.
Then copy paste the text above according to your version, and press enter. Terminal will prompt you for your password.. and it will be installed.
