VMware Workstation 12 Pro on Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

Mental note 🙂

VMware Workstation 12 Pro on Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia does not install correctly. This apparently is not a Mint issue so much as kernel 4.13.x issue.

Spent some time in Google University trying to figure it out (maybe I AM getting old… 🙁 ).

Anyway, the solution can be found here: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2745542#2745542

ukos0vm provides the perfect fix:

The scripts on https://github.com/mkubecek/vmware-host-modules are already very straight forward. If it is not simple enough, try the following script from my gist:

cd ~/Downloads

wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/ukos-git/e656c47025dd55b4836a980a34811637/raw/21533798c550a12ba6bf2feedf63f24324ed3713/patch-vmware12.sh

sudo bash ./patch-vmware12.sh

Thank you ukos0vm!
