I have a Ubuntu 16.04 guest operating system running on a windows 10 host, I am using VMware workstation 15 player. I have been trying to set up a shared folder but the shared folder doesn't seem to be showing up.
My shared folder doesn't seem to be appearing under the default path /mnt/hgfs on Ubuntu. In fact /mnt/hgfs doesn't even exist only /mnt/ exist.
What I tried
After some digging around I discovered that running
sudo vmware-config-tools.pl should fix my problem. Unfortunetly when I run
sudo vmware-config-tools.pl I get
sudo: vmware-config-tools.pl: command not found. I checked if
open-vm-tools-desktop is installed and it is with the latest version.
The next thing I did was to check if my Ubuntu guest was able to detect that there is a shared folder on my host OS by running
vmware-hgfsclient and the name of my shared folder came up.
Here's a screenshot of my terminal after running the "what I tried" commands
Any idea on things I can do to access my shared folder in Ubuntu (my guest OS)?
