    Drag-drop not working for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on VMware® Workstation 15 Pro

      Hi all,


      On Windows 10 x64 I've installed VMware® Workstation 15 Pro, Version 15.5.2 build-15785246 and on it a virtual machine: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. The problem is drag and rop from Windows to Linux doesn't work and the VMware tools is installed and it's grayed out on the VM tab. so I went for doing these:


      1- sudo apt-get autoremove open-vm-tools

      2- Install VMware Tools by following the usual method (Virtual Machine --> Reinstall VMware Tools)

      3- Reboot the VM

      4- sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools

      5- sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop


      Now it looks this way:







      But still drag and drop doesn't work. What else should I do, please?

      Should I un-mount the Tools and restart the virtual machine now?
