Here is my system :

Kali Linux Rolling - 2016.1 - GNU/LINUX

VMWare Workstation 10.0.3    

I upgraded my headers to 4.4.0 by these commands :

apt-get update -y  
apt-get upgrade -y  
apt-get dist-upgrade -y  

apt-get install module-assistant  
m-a update  
m-a prepare 

Now i want to install vmware tools on this machine.
So i followed this :
It seems every thing is ok : drag, drop, copy, paste against local machine.
But the problem is about : Shared Folders...
How can i mount shared folder?
This command shows me the shared folder's name : vmware-hgfsclient -> My_sh_Folder
But how can i access it?


I had a similar problem recently starting after the update from about 5 or 6 weeks ago.

In Linux, open terminal and type:

ls /mnt/hgfs

You will see a list of shared folders from VMware. If you don’t see any then try:

sudo mount -t fuse.vmhgfs-fuse .host:/ /mnt/hgfs -o allow_other

Then when you see the list of shared folders, you can map the path:

ln -s /mnt/hgfs/<FOLDERNAME>/ /root/Desktop/<FOLDERNAME>
