I have patched official VMWare tools with https://github.com/rasa/vmware-tools-patches
These patches were required to compile VMWqare tools under Ubuntu 14.04 without compilation errors.
Than I listed shared folders and ran into error:
~$ lsmod | grep hgfs
vmhgfs 53979 1
vmw_vmci 62966 1 vmhgfs
~$ ls -la /mnt/hgfs/
ls: cannot access /mnt/hgfs/: Not a directory
Also I tried to mount it to different directory with similar result:
~$ sudo mount -t vmhgfs .host:/ ~/Shares
~$ ls -la ~/Shares/
ls: cannot access /home/ubuntu/Shares/: Not a directory
Could you help me with this trouble?
Do you have kernel >= 3.16? (i.e. $ uname -r) If version == 3.13.xx, patching will break your vmware-tools access to hgfs.
