I am running VMWare Player under Linux as an ordinary user with no sudo rights. Unfortunately the Player shows no USB devices. Also network inside guest machines does not work. I tried both creating a new virtual machine as well as starting an old one, copied from other computer.
Note: otherwise old machine works as expected and the new one boots properly from CD image.
I also tried to run VMPlayer as another user that has sudo rights as well as root using
sudo vmplayer and the effect is the same.
As of network I tried both NAT and bridged one.
- How to make network and USB devices work?
- Can I run Player as normal user with no root privileges?
