    try this on the commandline, it worked for me

    Code:
    echo "deb http://http.kali.org/kali kali-rolling main non-free contrib" > /etc/apt/sources.list
    apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop fuse

    i used a "kali-linux-mate-2016.2-amd64.iso" image to create a vmware guest. its been running fine for quite awhile. i'm wanting to get open-vm-tools to run on it. i used the commands from this article, "https://docs.kali.org/general-use/install-vmware-tools-kali-guest" ...

    apt update && apt -y full-upgrade
    # Reboot now in case you have updated to a new kernel. Once rebooted :
    apt -y install open-vm-tools-desktop fuse
    reboot

    the apt-get install seemed to complete. didn't notice any errors. but i'm not sure its actually working, i.e., vShpere doesn't return VMTools are running on this guest.

    got some tips to help me get this installed and working?
