I have installed VMWare Player from the website, and have an Ubuntu machine running. My main issue is with VMWare Tools, and whenever I try to install, it fails. First, VMPlayer asks me to download and install the latest. I hit accept, and a dialog that is unreadable appears that asks for my password. Once I put it in, it attempts to download but then fails, and outputs an unreadable error message. The screenshots are attached below.
I am using Slackware 14, 64 bit, and VMPlayer 6.0 64 bit.
