Download the VMware Player for Linux.2-VMware-Player-Install-1.pngImage Enlarger

My downloads go into my Downloads Folder. Check to see if the VMware Player Bundle is their.3-VMware-Player-Install-1.pngImage Enlarger

Open terminal and type " cd Downloads " to change the directory.

After in ~/Downloads $ type " ls " to list contents

You should now see the VMware Player Bundle download

While at the ~/Downloads $ type " sudo sh


or whatever the newest VMware version might be. I usually type the sudo sh and copy and paste the bundle file

Hit enter and the install should begin, answer a couple of ? and VMware Player should install to your Linux OS.

sudo is for elevated privileges and sh opens the script file.

The Player is free for non-commercial use

Now I will buid me a XP virtual machine, or maybe a W10 virtual machine.

How about W10 VMware virtual machine running on a Linux Mint 18.3 host.
