    VMWare Workstation Won't Start on Linux

    townsbg Novice

      I am trying to test Workstation on Linux. I installed version 12 without any error during install but when I go to start it nothing happens. When I try the restart command I get this:

       

      sudo /etc/init.d/vmware restart

      Stopping VMware services:

         VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done

         VM communication interface socket family                            done

         Virtual machine communication interface                             done

         Virtual machine monitor                                             done

         Blocking file system                                                done

      Starting VMware services:

         Virtual machine monitor                                            failed

         Virtual machine communication interface                             done

         VM communication interface socket family                            done

         Blocking file system                                                done

         Virtual ethernet                                                   failed

         VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done

       

      I don't know enough about Linux to know where to go from here. I am running Linux Mint 19.3.
