As the title says it all; When I run vmplayer at the commandline the gui shows up asking whether I want to enter a serial number or use it for free--I select free and then the terminal says:
Authentication is needed to run `/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-setup-helper' as the super user
Authenticating as: root
So I enter my root passwd and get this error:
polkit-agent-helper-1: error response to PolicyKit daemon: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: No session for cookie
==== AUTHENTICATION FAILED ===
Error executing command as another user: Not authorized
This incident has been reported.
pls advise appreciate your input
Run it the first time as Root, to finish the setup. Then it shouldn't need root afterwards.
