I am trying to migrate my Windows 10 machine into a virtual machine which I can run under Ubuntu 16.04 which is my preferred OS. I used VMware vCenter Convertor to move all my files and the OS into vmx format so that I can open it from VMware player under Ubuntu.
But once I run the virtual machine under Ubuntu I find that the keyboard input is not recognised and I am not able to install/update the VMware Tools as most of the sites on the internet suggest. The "Install VMware Tools..." option under the "Virtual Machine" menu is totally greyed out. The screen resolution is also poor plus it does not take up the entire screen when I set it to full screen. I think all of this will probably be related to not having the VMware tools not being installed. But how do I install it?
I want to add that I am running the latest version (12.5.5 build-5234757) of VMware downloaded from the official site. Also, mouse input seems to work just fine and I am able to navigate around using the on-screen keyboard without any problem at all/
