Open-vm-tools location (Ubuntu 18.0.4)?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I am completely new to Linux, so any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to figure out where the open VM tools desktop package is located so I can run it. I already installed the regular open VM tools package but I am trying to open the desktop package so I can enable copying and pasting between host and VM. Thank you in advance for your help.
