    Default VMware Image - vmwaretools getting things working.

    after installing the vmware tools, if you are having issues do this:
    Code:
    apt-get update
    apt-get install linux-source
    cd /usr/src
    tar jxpf linux-source-{version}.tar.bz2
    ln -s linux-source-{version} linux
    cd linux
    zcat /proc/config.gz > .config
    make scripts
    make prepare
    Code:
    mount /dev/cdrom3 /mnt/cdrom
    cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz /tmp/
    cd /tmp/
    tar zxpf VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz
    cd vmware-tools-distrib
    ./vmware-install.pl
    Run this to fix auto resize guest window.

    Code:
    dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
    #then
    echo "/usr/bin/vmware-toolbox" > ~/.kde3/Autostart/vmware-toolbox.sh
    chmod +x ~/.kde3/Autostart/vmware-toolbox.sh
    the last two lines will auto start vmware toolbox so autosize finally works !!
