In their website vmware claims that if we are "Unable to locate the ISO image for the VMware Tools installation" then we can just download it. I followed the link indicated and I can find ISO's for the case where the guest is Windows. But what I need is an ISO for the case when the guest is linux (Ubuntu). Where are the ISOs?

They are certainly there. Just have a look at this page:

That is a subdirectory of the site linked to by VMWare and certainly does not just have Windows.

That site does not include an .iso file for easy installation. For ubuntu it has a bunch of .debs, and it's unclear what they want to do with them (install all? Some? Import as apt-source?). There seems to be no .iso on that site whatsoever... – Cray Nov 19 '15 at 10:48
