I have my VMware Player (v 5.0.0 build-812388) all up and running Ubuntu (12.10) from my Windows (Win 7) machine.
When I launch
sudo vmware-config-tools.pl, it tries to search for kernel
Searching for a valid kernel header path... The path "" is not a valid path to the 3.5.0-17-generic kernel headers. Would you like to change it? [yes] Enter the path to the kernel header files for the 3.5.0-17-generic kernel?
The path "/usr/src/linux-headers-3.5.0-17-generic" is not a valid path to the 3.5.0-17-generic kernel headers.
Due to this it doesn't compile modules. So unable to mount HGFS (shared folder) filesystems.
Any ideas how I can fix this?
