    Workstation 9.0.2 Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit

    keshwarsingh Novice

      Hello,

       

      Anyone installed Workstation 9.0.2 on a fresh ubuntu 13.04 64 bit installation ?

       

      If so, any patch which needs to be applied before ?

          No patch is needed.  Works great "out of the box" for me.

           

          It is possible however that you may not be able to insert ther licnese key from the GUI.

           

          In that case go to /usr/lib/vmware/licenses/site  and edit the file    "license-ws-90-e1-201202"  with the text editor you like (e.g.  sudo nano license-ws-90-e1-201202)  and  insert the line:

           

          Serial=XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX after the line License Type. save the file and you are licensed forever.

            Hello,

             

            Just installed without any issue, however i was unable to enter the serial number & did the following:

             

            /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-vmx-debug --new-sn serial-number-goes-here

             

            Workstation 9 launches fine, but virtual network editor doesn't works.

             

            Could anyone please confirm if the virtual network editor works fine from their side on Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit ?

                I'm not a Linux guy, so please don't mind me if this does not apply, but maybe http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/gtk-message-failed-to-load-module-canberra-gtk-module-936168/ is related to this issue!?

                  Guess you didn't see my updated post  previous.  Sot I repeat

                  Obviously you need to replace XXX.. with your own serial number.  Its been a l ong time since I used a trial version (not saying you have) but you can still elnter the serail number as above  You next problem is different and I'll have a look at that but using the above instructions is easier for me than using a slightly complex command linie (which I'm not sure than anybody has veried that it works - it would absolutely have to inser the Serial= linie anyway so  that all the information appears in the about screen. If that is not the case its p oor programminig   IMIHO.

                    Run any network configurations using h Network Editor program rather than the command line standalone program .  If you get the same error (won't be nearly  as verbose as what  you posted) then post that error please.

                      When i run the virtual network editor, nothing happens..

                       

                      Reverted back to 12.04 LTS :-)

                        Well if you want you can always take the upgrade path 12.04 > 12.10 > 13.04.  I had to do this because the is no alternate installer for Ubuntu after 12.04 LTS.  Not  even the server installer recognizes my RAID 5 configuratioin.  Guess, like Fedora, they don't make installers the way they used to.   If you do a minimal install this doesn't take as long as you might think.

                         

                        Take care

                          I am having this same problem with Workstation9 and 13.04, 64-bit.  /var/log/syslog reports : vmware-gksu[15497]: segfault at 7fcc5d7271aa ip 00007fcc61c85be6 sp 00007fffc536ca58 error 4 in libc-2.17.so[7fcc61b4d000+1be000] everytime I try and use the 'Virtual Network Editor'.  I had this same error when I tried the 'enter license' information but found the command to get the license installed through the command line in the forums.


                          I have tried the complete uninstall/re-install of Workstation 9 to no avail.  Also, this was a fresh install of 13.04.  I have even tried re-installing the library but that didn't help either.

                           

                          I will keep searching but any help would be appreciated.

                            I have the same issue and the best I can tell is that it is a permissions issue.

                             

                            The workaround I have for this is to run "vmware" with root permissions.

                             

                            This is most easily accomplished by pressing "alt-f2" and entering "gksu vmware".

                            You will then be prompted for your password and VMware Workstation should run like you would normally expect, except now when you go to Virtual Network Editor, it will appear.

                             

                            Hope this helps.

                              That did, in fact, fix my problems. 

                               

                              Thank you for the help!  I really appreciate it.

                                  If you need run the virtual network editor, only copy this in terminal sudo /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-netcfg

                                    Hi ,

                                     

                                    Have you tried uninstalling Workstation and the run this command  sudo apt-get install gkt2-murrine-engine:i386

                                     

                                    IF already tried and did not help you may also want to try install libgtkmm-2.4-1c2a . This fixed the issue for me!
