Okay, here the admin wants to share about the installation of VMware Workstation on GNU/Linux Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The goal is to help friends who use the Linux Operating System and want to use VMware Workstation on Linux.
“Isn’t it difficult to install, sir?”
“It’s easy, just follow this article, God willing, your VMware Workstation is successfully installed.”
Sorry for the long preamble… Hehe
1. Please first download the latest VMware Workstation 12 application here.
2. After downloading, please add access rights.
$ sudo chmod +x VMware-Workstation-Full-12.1.0-3272444.x86_64.bundle
3. After that execute the file to proceed to the installation.
$ sudo ./VMware-Workstation-Full-12.1.0-3272444.x86_64.bundle
4. Here I get an error, but it’s not really a problem that is important to be able to troubleshoot the problem.
(vmware-installer.py:19962): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “murrine”,
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module”: libcanberra-gtk-module.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Do not continue the installation, Ctrl + C to cancel. Read: There are two errors above, (1) “unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “murrine” and (2) “Failed to load module “canberra-gtk-module”. In this case all I can troubleshoot is number two, if the number one problem is just a problem not being able to load the theme in the “murrine” module_path but there is no problem with just themes. I’ve also been looking for the problem before and I’ve tried the solutions but to no avail. And this problem has nothing to do with performance, processes when running VMware Workstation, so don’t worry bro…
For troubleshooting, please execute this command:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gtk-2.0/modules/libcanberra-gtk-module.so /usr/lib/libcanberra-gtk-module.so
5. Once executed, please continue the installation to completion.
6. Hopefully useful … Sorry here I do not explain the installation steps. And it’s actually really easy… For VMware Workstation Serial Numbers, etc., please PM me…
