I have installed Debian Wheezy in VMWare Player 5.0.2 build-1031769 and all is fine. Except the "Failed to load Gome3" messages keep on coming. This is what I did so far:

  • Installed VMWare Tools (some answers on the web claim that did does the trick. No luck so far here).
  • Setting the accelerate 3D Graphics to true in the virtual machine (some answers on the web claim that did does the trick. No luck so far here).
  • Install Whezy into Oracle VirtualBox (some answers on the web indicate that Virtualbox has sometimes better support . Allthough that may true, still no Gnome3, just the fallback).
  • One site suggest I just have to make a ~/.config/autostart/gnome3-desktop file and restart the session (still no Gnome3).

The question is simple: Is there a way to make this working ? Other than waiting on Gnome3 suppport in VMWare Player.
