    complete working vmware install guide with sharing, copy and paste.

    Hello all,

    After many installs and re-installs to get Kali working just right in vmware heres is my way.

    By the end of this guide, VM-Tools folder sharing , copy & paste and mouse SHOULD be working fine.

    I used the Kali vm download and got no end of issues with sharing , install aborted on the re-installtion of vmtools.

    So I started from scratch, here goes:

    VMWARE INSTALLATION: Using version 7.4x Vmware Workstation
    Use the iso from downloads
    I chose 20gb and 2048mb Memory
    Choose Linux and kernel 2.6X
    Enable mirrors etc
    Reboot

    VMTOOLS SHARED FOLDERS INSTALL:

    echo cups enabled >> /usr/sbin/update-rc.d
    echo vmware-tools enabled >> /usr/sbin/update-rc.d

    apt-get install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/include/linux/


    EJECT LIVE CD THEN:

    mkdir /mnt/vmware
    mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/vmware/
    cp -rf /mnt/vmware/VMwareTools* /tmp/


    cd /tmp/
    tar zxpf VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
    cd vmware-tools-distrib/
    ./vmtools-install.pl

    Path not found for gcc ( I chose no to change path )

    apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse
    reboot


    BLEEDING EDGE REPOS:

    echo deb http://repo.kali.org/kali kali-bleeding-edge main >> /etc/apt/sources.list
    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade



    KDE-DESKTOP:

    apt-get install kde-plasma-desktop

    KATE:

    apt-get install kate


    apt-get install icedove (EMAIL CLIENT)

    FLASH PLAYER:


    apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    update-flashplugin-nonfree --install


    Hope this helps,

    Kind Regards Dee
