    Maybe try the following:
    Code:
    sudo sh ./VMware-Player-12.5.9-7535481.x86_64.bundle
    Not sure this will work or not. Worth trying though.

    You should inspect the install log file to identify the details for why your install failed.

    But,
    Before you do that, have you installed the required dependencies before installing?
    The VMware install will dynamically build kernel modules, and any install that does that requires the following first (at least once sometime)
    Code:
    zypper in kernel-devel kernel-default-devel make gcc
    And,
    Only because LEAP 15 is so new at the moment,
    If the gcc version fails, I wrote an article awhile back that describes how to set up switching between installed gcc (You'd also have to install the older version of gcc separately)
