I'm new to Linux and I have installed Kali Linux on VM Workstation.I want to install the VM tools but when I click "install VMware tools" from the VM workstation menu I receive this error at the guest OS window "unable to mount VM ware tools error mounting:mount exited with with exit code 1:...." Does any on know what's the problem here and how I can proceed with the installation.
The vmware tools are normally injected by inserting a virtual install medium into the guest system. If your guest machine has no CD device, this could fail.
As an alternative, you may be able to install vmware tools from the package manager of your distribution with some command along the lines of
instead of via the VMWare workstation menu.
If this does not work instantly, you may have to edit
