VMware Tools Update

I do a lot of my software development in a Linux virtual machine and my virtualization software of choice (at the moment) on my Mac is VMware Fusion. Each time the linux kernel is updated the VMware Tools need to be reconfigured. I thought I needed to reinstall them, but that turns out to be overkill.

Instead just open a terminal in the directory where you keep if the VMware Tools installation files and do this:

<br /> $sudo bin/vmware-config-tools.pl -d<br /> $sudo shutdown -r now<br />

The ‘-d’ just uses the default settings so you don’t need to answer it’s bazillion questions every time.

Thanks to Hercules on this thread for the solution.
