VMware are moving away from the classic VMware tooling to
open-vm-tools, available in most distros as standard. This is a Good Thing (tm).
If you need the legacy tools, attach the ISO in the UI, and then:
sudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom sudo mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom cp /mnt/cdrom/VMwareTools-* /tmp tar xvf /tmp/VMwareTools-* cd vmware-tools-distrib sudo ./vmware-install.pl
