My host is Mac OS X and I used VMware Fusion 3 to install Windows 7, Windows XP, and Ubuntu Linux. I can drag and drop folders between Windows 7/XP and Mac OS X, but I cannot do the same for Ubuntu. I try to look for setting but nothing relevant. Is it a problem with Mac, VMware, or Ubuntu? How to solve it?
From a post on the VMware blog on copy & pasting between host of vm
A couple of overall tips to begin with. If you're having trouble with drag-and-drop/copy-and-paste: make sure that you have updated your Workstation, Player, or VMware Fusion to the latest version, and that you have the current version of VMware Tools installed
Do you have VMware tools installed on the Ubuntu virtual machine?
