Thread: Problem on installing VMware

    Default Problem on installing VMware

    I tried to install VMWare in konsole with user root. Here are what I have done:

    chmod +x VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-118166.x86_64.bundle
    ./VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-118166.x86_64.bundle


    After the second command was executed, error bash: ./VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-118166.x86_64.bundle: Permission denied prompted.

    Can anybody tell me why?? I am quite new to linux.

    Btw, I can successfully install the software with the command
    sh VMware-Workstation-6.5.0-118166.x86_64.bundle

    Hi
    You need a period before the backslash to execute;
    Code:
    ../<name_of_file>

    It should do, if you make it executable first with the chmod
    command ./ will work, if you don't use the chmod, use sh.

    It's also dependent on the whole shebang (#!/...) entry at the
    beginning of the script.

    For example it may be a perl script (generally indicated by
    <filename>.pl) so it would be perl <filename>.pl or python
    <filename>.py so in that case it would be python <filename>.py etc

    If you don't know what it's using, just chmod it and you should be good
    to go.
